General Event Details:
Our maximum number of riders is 70. Daily distances vary according to bus travel, campsite availability, difficulty of terrain, available detours, etc but may be up to about 75km. Riders can choose, according to their fitness and skills, from groups of differing speed, group 1 being the fastest and strongest riders who may ride extra distance.
Overnight stops are in bush camps or on the fringes of towns. You can sleep in a tent or a swag.
Food is plentiful and we cater for your dietary requirements. Support vehicles meet us at various checkpoints. Morning teas and lunches are provided along the way by our catering team, who also supply a wholesome meal each night at the camp.
Transport is by coach to and from Kelmscott. We also supply trailers to carry your bikes and mobile toilets that meet us along the route.
The cost is $300, covering all accommodation, food and transport. Registrations open via Register Now on May 1 each year. The events are now held over four days to allow for increasing travel time to and from the event.
Please note there is a minimum $200 fundraising requirement. While trying to offer a fun ride and a challenge to all abilities, we also see fundraising as a major component of the ride and hope that you will do your best to contribute. Chocolate sales, collection tins, sausage sizzles, afternoon teas, quiz nights, Everyday Hero online fundraising option, casual dress days at work…..are all possibilities. See the fundraising page.
Travel by coach from Kelmscott to the Tree Top Walk in the Valley of the Giants. Option to do the Tree Top Walk.
