Welcome from our President:
G’day all Rotacyclist . Most of you will know me from our fellowship at AGMs and other events.
I started as a member in Goondiwindi Qld in 2007 and shortly after found great fellowship in and around Perth WA, before returning to Queensland.
I am a passionate IFMR member and have the interest of the Fellowship at heart. I have served 8 terms as the IFMR Chapter secretary and did a 3 year term as IFMR International Secretary.
My goal for this term as President is to raise the profile of the IFMR Australia (see R100 project story) and increase membership through more riding so that others may get to enjoy the great fellowship that we have to share. Note: All members should be looking for opportunities to share a ride. Perhaps talk with your State Representative if you need help to promote one.
The Chinwags (by Zoom) are a good place to enjoy fellowship when we’re not riding as much as we’d like to and I invite all members to Join In when-ever possible. It’s a casual atmosphere to have-a-chat.
Our Facebook page is another great source of day to day activity which keeps members in close contact with one another. Please have a look and FOLLOW US. Consider making some contributions to it yourself so we know what you’re up to.
Please take the time to check this website regularly as it has the ability to develop in just about any way that Members, or other interested persons wish. Please send your comment via 'Contact Us' menu option. If you are already a Rotacyclist, and your current email address is in our database, then login to this website by using the Username and Password allocated to you by the Administrator.
In closing, I urge all members to attend other Rotary Club meetings on your bike and tell their members about IFMR. Seek out motorcycle riding Rotarians and invite them on a ride, even if it’s just the two of you.
Australian Chapter President 2020 - 2021
Peter Brown (Member since 2007)
Well it’s going on almost 30 years since the formation of the International Fellowship of Motorcycling Rotarians, which was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Loxton, District 9520, South Australia, and gained official Rotary recognition on the 13th January 1992. link to IFMR History.
We’ve made a lot of great friends and memories over that time. I recommend the stories on our IFMR History page to you for interesting reading.
From those early years the number of Chapters throughout the world has grown to cover most of the world and is still growing. Take a look at where they all are. link to IFMR Global Chapters,
Each of them function autonomously but are guided by our International Executive leadership team who seek out input from all Chapters.
IFMR members who travel overseas, should seek out these IFMR Chapters for fellowship and their local knowledge of the riding conditions. It will add to your travel experience.
Membership is open to all Rotarians and those with Rotary ideals, who share an interest in motorcycling. One of the aims of this website is to promote the IFMR Australian Chapter to Rotarians and the general public.
