Can you spot Joe Rider?

Cessnock City Council is running the ‘Joe Rider’ motorcycle campaign this Motorcycle Awareness Month October 2020.

Joe Rider aims to reduce the occurrence of SMIDSY (Sorry Mate I Didn’t See You) crashes, and entails promoting a week during October where the local community is encouraged to spot ‘Joe Rider’ and enter a competition.  We want all road users to look out for, and notice motorcycle riders – particularly in our urban areas.

Spot ‘Joe Rider’ and help motorcyclists Ride to Live.

Competition details

Winners will be contacted by phone to collect their voucher.
