The show is organised by CRAB - Cancer Research Advocate Bikers - which was formed in 2004 by a man named Robbie Grimstone and a few mates, after the loss of Rob's mother to cancer. The guys got together to discuss ways they could make a difference in the fight against cancer and as they enjoyed motorcycles for work and for pleasure it was decided to combine this with fundraising. They came up with CRAB, a social club designed for the purpose of raising funds for cancer research and tens of thousands of dollars have been donated to the cause. The format has spread to other states and all branches of CRAB are non profit organisations and all work is carried out by volunteers.
