Do I have to ride a motorbike?
No. This is open to all those interested in two wheels. If you don't ride or your girls out of action, jump on the back of a mate, drive, roller skate or whatever! JUST GET THERE ANYWAY YOU CAN!
What do I bring?
Ya party boots! And it wouldn't hurt to throw in the following: Camping gear (unless you plan on scoring a cabin in which case you'll just need bed linen) bikinis, hats, torches, refill bottles for water (water sources available at location) suncream, insect repellent, eski's if you want ya drinks cold (support vehicle available).
Will there be food provided?
Hell yeah! Food, Coffee and even Booze! (vegan & gluten free options available) Otherwise pack your favourite goodies.
Is it BYO or will there be drinks available for purchase?
This is one area we've got covered! There will be a bar slingin drinks at the venue.
I am a business and would like to have a stall, who do I contact?
Fabulous! We'd love to see what you've got. Simply fill out the form on the Stallholders page via the 'Event Info' Tab and we'll get back to you with more information.
Can I bring my dog?
Hell Yeah! We love dogs :) Just make sure your best mates well behaved and all bombs are picked up after impact.
Do I have to book a cabin?
Yes, if you would like to book a cabin you can do this via the Ticket page.
What happens if I break down on the ride?
Don't worry, we'll have a support vehicle. Anyone that breaks down will be well looked after and we'll make sure you get there and don't miss a thing. The vehicle will also be available to load your goods on the morning of the ride. It will be leaving with us from The Old Bike Shop Cafe so please arrive early if you have things to load.
I can't fit everything on my bike
Yeah well we are a bunch a girls aren't we! If you've got too much camping gear / eski / outfit changes or a shining slab of VB you just cant fit on your bike, the support vehicle will be loading up and taking anything you need out there.
It will be leaving with the group ride from The Old Bike Cafe at on the day of the event, so please arrive early if you have things to load.
Will there be males there?
This is strictly a female/female identifying event. We are and will continue to be a trans & NB inclusive event. NO ticket sales will be made to males. We are doing our absolute best to make sure all or as many workers as possible at Sheilas Shakedown are female. There could however be a small number of males at the event for purposes such as: Band members or First Aid Officer etc.
The ride leaves at 10am sharp on Saturday from The Old Bike Shop Cafe on Lygon Street in East Brunswick, Melbourne. We encourage women to organise their own group rides out so you can go any route you like!
Most importably though is ride safety, so please have a good read through the document below, outlining some important details to make sure we all have a good understanding of riding in a pack!
