The 2020 Virtual White Ribbon Ride.

The 2020 White Ribbon Ride is cancelled. Instead a series of local rides are occuring. These will be joined together and be called The 2020 Virtual White Ribbon Ride.

Under normal circumstances the White Ribbon Riders travel throughout New Zealand spreading the non violence kaupapa and promoting the annual November campaign. It’s an exciting initiative where riders who look rough and ride powerful bikes, talk about Respectful Relationships and solutions to tackling this country’s crippling domestic violence record. Violence destroys families, sets our children on a destructive journey and affects one in three women. Usually this week-long motorcycle tour happens every November – White Ribbon Month, and is a powerful and inspirational voyage for all involved.

This year with the threat of COVID19 we are holding local rides to ensure we keep our population and riders as safe as possible. That means that the lead riders will not be steering a convoy through towns in the North and South Islands, picking up support riders in every region along the way. Instead local riders will be supporting local White Ribbon Riders and local organisations to attend local events as the White Ribbon Riders.

How to support the 2020 Virtual White Ribbon Ride:

1. Register your event online

2. Contact White Ribbon ( and we can see if we can provide a local Rider or Ambassador and White Ribbon resources to support your event.

3. No event in your area – why not create your own White Ribbon Event at your school, workplace or community. Click here for details.

4. Your event will be added to our Virtual Ride Map.

5. Share your photos/videos from your event on socials or stories tag in Facebook with the #whiteribbonride2020

When you put up a global post with the hashtag #whiteribbonride2020, the campaign team are able to local the post and share this.

This year we will be encouraging local riders to join with a local White Ribbon Rider to support local events and continue to raise awareness in your town or city. To find out more about how to organise an event, read this document.
