RUMBLE OR RAMBLE…IT’S UP TO YOU!

SATURDAY, AUGUST 6th 2022

We have been quiet for a while, but there is a very good reason.

The team ‘went bush’ and have developed a new route for this year’s Collie River Mountain Bike Marathon. Now finally emerged from the Harris River State Forest, we are ready to announce this year’s race course. We are not sure if it’s the wild berries we have had to live on or just the hell of it, but we have come up with the longest mountain bike race ever held in Collie. We all know how good those Collie tracks are and we have dug deep, poked around, and found even more. Believe us when we say you are in for a treat.

The XCM series race is over 80km of beauty, featuring old school single track, modern flow trails, some quick fire trails, and everything in-between. Once again, we have a 50km course for those not so obsessed with pain, a 35km race and the only dedicated adaptive course in the calendar which the youngest juniors can also take on.

Come join us…you can rumble or ramble…it’s up to you!
