Large numbers of motorcyclists travelled across Commonwealth Avenue Bridge on Saturday as part of the Wall to Wall Ride for Remembrance which commemorates the service and sacrifice of police officers.

The ACT motorcyclists left Canberra for Goulburn Police Academy at 9.30 am on Saturday, where they joined for a barbecue before returning to Exhibition Park in Mitchell.

They then put on an impressive display as they rode along Northborne Avenue and across the bridge to attend a ceremony at the National Police Memorial.

The Wall to Wall Ride for Remembrance began in 2009 and was inspired by the immensely popular ‘Ride for the Fallen’ in Texas which is a special tribute that honours the many law enforcement officers killed in the service of that American state.

The Australian ride is supported by police jurisdictions in every State and Territory and raises much-needed funds in support of police charity organisations.

As well as its special role in paying homage to police officers who have died as a result of their service to the community, the ride highlights the positive image of police in the promotion of motorcycle safety and awareness.

Local photographer Jack Mohr was there to capture all the action of this memorable police event.
