More than 300 motorcyclists will take off from the heart of Melbourne early Friday to remember police who have died in the line of duty.
The ride will begin at the Victoria Police Memorial on St Kilda Road, after a short service at 7.30am and stops overnight at Merimbula.
Riders will then continue to Canberra on Saturday where they will join police from other states for the ninth annual Wall to Wall Ride
This year, Acting Chief Commissioner Shane Patton will pass the legacy baton, containing the name of all Victorian police members killed while serving, to 17-year-old Emerson Jason Spriggs.
Emerson will carry the baton to Canberra as a pillion passenger on one of the motorcycles, in memory of his father, Detective Sergeant Jason Spriggs, a serving police officer for 30 years who died earlier this year.
Acting Superintendent John Felton said the ride is an important event in honouring fallen police and letting their families know they are not forgotten.
"It's important for us to be able to get together and remember our colleagues who died serving our community," he said.
The ride also raises funds for police legacies across Australia to enable them to support police families.
