From February to September 2019 we will conduct monthly practice rides. These will increase in length and/or difficulty as we get closer to the event in October.
A key ride is the Kep Track between Mundaring and Northam. In 2019 there will again be two options.
- Two days – ride to Northam on Saturday, stay overnight in Northam, ride back on Sunday. Crew and trailer will follow. Sweep rider at back. Luggage transported for you.
- One day – bus to Northam and ride back to Mundaring. Ride at your own pace, option to stop at Bakers Hill Pie Shop for lunch. Bus and trailer will follow. Sweep rider at the back. Check in at the end.
