Collie has a rich history of Road Cycling – in decades past it has been referred to as the centre of cycling in Western Australia. Now Collie’s huge potential for Mountain Bike riding is being developed 12Km of new trails are planned to open shortly before we arrive. Collie is one of the few WA towns that has all the amenities visitors could want and is located in the middle of the forest – ideal for Mountain Bike trails.
This year we will explore the trails Collie and Wellington National Park have to offer. (Program subject to change.)
Day 1: We will ride through the spectacular Jarrah Forest and explore Arklow, 220 Trail, Highland Highway, Morning Glory, Dead Cat and Ray’s Trail before riding to our camp site in town.
Day 2: Starting at Wellington Dam our ride takes us into the Collie River valley following the Sika, Munda Biddi & Lennard Tracks before climbing up to the Mt Lennard Trails. Here you can choose over 40km of trails including Butchers, Grizzly, Boylan and more. We will drive back to our camp in town.
Day 3: The Collie-Darkan Rail Trail beckons. 46km from Buckingham to Darkan with an additional 14km to Dardeline which faster riders can explore. Before heading to Perth you may want to follow the Collie River to Marri Meander, Drop Dead Fred & Rocky Horror.
There are trails to suit all abilities and the spectacular scenery will not disappoint.
General Event Details
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 usually 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.
During registration, you can create a donations page on Raise It.
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.
