Club Events

The Club run many sorts of events from our fortnightly weekend rides, through to overnighters or weekends away (not to be missed) to our fantastic Fun Day events at the Phillip Island circuit.  This is the place to keep your eye on to see what is happening. 

Events may appear here before registration is open. If  the event is a limited-numbers event, there may be a wait list option for you to put your name down in case anyone cancels. 

Many events are free, some are not, some events require a deposit or full payment up front, some events have limited numbers.  So, be sure to check the event details by clicking on the event below.  In the event that you are no longer able to attend a paid for event we do have a Refund Policy which you can review here.

Only financial club members may book an event, although unless the event is specified as 'members only', a club member may book for their non-members guests.  Again, check the event details.  

Note: all events are run under permit by Motorcycling Australia Permit # MA2517

    A ride to Licola leaving at 10 am? Yep, and with a bonus of completing the bitumen beyond Licola on the Jamieson and Tamboritha Roads - made possible with a stay at Maffra Motor Inn on Saturday night.

    Sunday's preferred return is via the east end of the Strzelecki Ranges. It comes together with a 9 km section of Grand Ridge Road that is unsealed between Carrajung and Balook. The idea will be aborted unless road condition is confirmed in the days prior and the weather is cheery. If it is confirmed, riders preferring otherwise can take an alternative route on bitumen and reconvene over morning tea at Traralgon South.

    An early finish is planned at Nar Nar Goon to provide a head start to what remains of the Kings Birthday long weekend. 

    Caps are presently set at 6 twin sharers, 3 couples and 7 singles. They may alter with the pattern of registrations. Waitlists will operate and we will do our best to fit everyone up to the cut-off. The event will be locked after Thursday, June 1 - that is how it must be.

    It is a roll of the dice with the weather - a weekend of 650 km, plus commutes, and fresh territory for at least some. Suited to hardy, touring types.

    Save the date for another ride tailored to new members. If you are new to the Club then this is for you! Detail to follow.

    The DOCV is very much a riding club. Our rides combine interesting and enjoyable routes, good company and support and camaraderie that will stretch your riding horizons.

    Your first ride with the club can be a bit intimidating. After all you don't know anyone and you don't know what to expect.  So this ride is designed to ease you into club rides and get you started. It's classified as an "Easy Ride". It's a bit shorter than the typical club ride, has a few corners, and includes all of the club ride essentials:

    • Some great Victorian riding roads
    • Lunch at a reasonably priced but good venue
    • The shared experience of a club group activity

    It will be a fun route with nothing too challenging at a comfortable pace. 

    Established members are encouraged to get involved in the spirit of the event.

    Important: please take the time to acquaint yourselves with the club's riding protocols and etiquette. Your booking and participation in the ride will assume you have and requires it.

    The dates are set for another Tiger Hunt in 2024. A counter-clockwise route is in the pipeline with two nights at Wynyard, a single night in Queenstown, then double nights in Hobart and St Helens. The format is similar to past Hunts but with more opportunity to switch between groups. The groups will run in parallel and have sport touring, 'goat track' and 'slow down and sniff the roses' foci. People can also hive off and do their own thing at any time, as always. A detailed promo will appear in Desmoto before registration opens.
