Cessnock City Council is running the ‘Joe Rider’ motorcycle campaign 17 to 21 October 2022.

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.
