We acknowledge the traditional owners on the lands we ride.
Dykes on Bikes Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the many lands throughout Victoria on which we work, live, and ride. We pay our respects to all First Nation Australians, past, present, and emerging, we celebrate their diversity, and we recognise their continuing spiritual and cultural connection to the land and water.
Dykes on Bikes Melbourne acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
We pay our respects to those amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and intersex communities who have worked to support the improved health and wellbeing of their peers, children, families, friends, and country. We honour the elders in the diverse communities of which we are a part, and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people's bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent.
