The Wall to Wall ride is held annually to remember the sacrifices of fallen Australian police and raises funds for those officers’ family. The event, in partnership with the Centre for Road Safety, is also aimed at promoting bike safety.

More than 1000 police participated in Saturday’s ride, which was the eighth. They started at The Domain in Sydney where a ceremony was held with NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Jenkins and Minister for Police Troy Grant. then they made their way over the Harbour Bridge and up the Hume Highway.

On Sydney Road, on Goulburn’s outskirts, a contingent stopped to remember the late Constable Shelley Davis, killed while responding to a job on June 19, 2004.

At each location a baton is collected to deliver to the National Police Memorial in Canberra. All funds raised go to NSW Police Legacy.
