EXPERIENCE WA LIKE NEVER BEFORE! SEPTEMBER 13-18

From the historic township of York through the rolling yellow canola fields of Talbot, from the banks of the iconic Avon River in Northam to the incredible valley views of Toodyay, from the sweeping pastures of Beverley through the ancient granite landforms of Mawson, the Tour of WA is Western Australia as you’ve never experienced it before. In September the Avon Valley Region is resplendent with vibrant fields of wildflowers…a spectacle of nature best experienced by bike!

This 5-day, 550+km road tour offers cycling enthusiasts some of the most stunning locations, the most exhilarating routes, the most welcoming townships, and some of the best cycling company in the country. You will be fully supported whilst on the road by our always-helpful and ever-friendly RideWA Crew!

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. We expect that participating riders will be able to travel between 20km/hr and 30km/hr. Riders will be supported by our Ride WA ride guides, and a support vehicle will be following the Tour, in case anyone needs a rest.

Riders who do not currently have an AusCycling membership can sign up for the 4 Week Free Trial just before the Tour starts, or purchase a Lifestyle membership and be covered for the year. Proof of purchase of this membership must be shown at registration on Tuesday September 13th.

Refunds

Entries are non-refundable from 4 weeks prior to the event, but are transferable to another rider, or can be rolled over to 2023 if required.
