EXPERIENCE WA LIKE NEVER BEFORE! OCTOBER 6-11

From the turquoise beaches and leafy green wineries of the Margaret River Region, to the majestic karri and jarrah forests of the Southern Forests and Valleys, from the ancient granite-lined waterways of the Collie River Valley to the rolling green pastures and stunning forest peaks of the Blackwood Cycling District, the Tour of WA is Western Australia as you’ve never experienced it before!

This 6-day road tour offers cycling enthusiasts the most stunning locations, the most exhilarating routes, the most welcoming townships, and some of the best cycling company in the country.

Pace

The Tour of WA is a ride…not a race. We want every rider to be able to enjoy the scenic beauty of the routes we have chosen. On day one, our ride guides will help the larger group break into smaller groups according to pace. Riders can then choose the pace they wish to ride at, and join the appropriate group. We anticipate seven groups of around 20 riders, with speeds of 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28 km/hr. Movement between the groups is fine with us. If you find that a group is too slow or too fast for your comfort and enjoyment, you can move to another group. Every group will be supported by our Ride WA ride guides, and a support vehicle will be following the Tour, in case anyone needs a rest.

An Option to Ride for Charity

Select your favourite charity and raise funds as you undertake your journey. No obligations, no minimum amounts to raise.

Insurance

All participants must hold a Ride Membership with Westcycle or a Ride Membership with Cycling Australia prior to the commencement of the event.

Refunds

Entries are non-refundable from 4 weeks prior to the event, but are transferable to another rider, or can be rolled over to 2021 if required.

BASE CAMPS

We welcome all riders to camp with us at our base camps in each town. If you are keen to pack your tent and join us, please click on the the “Camp With Us” button below. The cost is $140 for five nights in a powered tent site, which includes a continental-style breakfast each morning at the campground. Please note, this option is for riders pitching their own tents. Riders with caravans and camper vans can organise their bookings and payments directly with the caravan parks. Riders who wish to stay in more mid-range or luxury accommodation are welcome to do so, but will need to organise this accommodation independently.

(Please note, in Collie the campsite will be established at the Recreation Centre.)
