Thank you to everyone who participated as a rider or a crew member for such a convivial 3 days.

Saturday 5 October:
Explore Boranup Forest, including Tunnel Run and Lord of the Rings and admire the beautiful Karri trees.
Sunday 6 October:
Return to Jarradene and ride north to link with the Wadandi Trail to Margaret River. Then spend time exploring Jedi, the Pines and Compartment 10.
Monday 7 October:
Rod, the creator of Middle Earth, has selected some routes for us in Middle Earth. Following this we will ride through Yelverton National Park and on to the Dunsborough Districts Country Club, with the option to ride Meelup and Country Club trails.
Note: we are not replicating the Cape 2 Cape MTB event (it has changed each year) but will be using some of the public trails used during that event.
General Event Details
This year we will be based at the Margaret River Venison Farm camp and bus out to different locations for daily rides. On technical trails riders will be able to choose which trails they wish to tackle. We will give you information on the trails beforehand, but please always ride in a group.
Our maximum number of riders is 75. Riders will be split into groups according to their fitness, speed and skills, group 1 being the fastest and strongest riders who will ride extra distance. Daily distances will vary but not exceed about 50km for the slower groups.
Food is plentiful and we cater for your dietary requirements. Morning teas and lunches are provided along the way by our catering team, who also supply a wholesome meal each night at the camp. Support vehicles meet us at various checkpoints with water, food and mobile toilets. Transport for you and your bike to and from Kelmscott is included.
The cost is $300 covering all accommodation (you supply swag or tent), food and transport. Contact us for family rates. There is a minimum $200 fundraising requirement (exemptions do apply). While trying to offer a fun ride and a challenge to all abilities, fundraising for CanTeen is our primary objective and we hope that you will do your best to assist us to achieve our goal.
Upon registration, your donations page on Raise It will be automatically created for you.
To assist you with fundraising options see suggestions on the website. Chocolate sales, collection tins, sausage sizzles, afternoon teas, quiz nights, online fundraising option, casual dress days at work…..are all possibilities.
