Motorcycle friendly business operators will display their "proud participant" stickers prominently. Many of the operators will also take the opportunity to offer motorcycle rider only offers through the AVMCFR Facebook group.
The annual Avon Valley Black Dog Ride comes through Toodyay in March each year. Motorcycle riders ride together to raise awareness for depression, and suicide prevention.
