After having huge success in previous years, we are so excited for the South West Bike Trek to be back in 2019!
The 2019 South West Bike Trek is set to commence on Sunday 13 October in Subiaco near the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation office and it will finish in Augusta on Saturday 19 October. The wonderful event has once again been organised by CLCRF member and trek organiser, Eric Maddock, with the help of Lions and Rotary Clubs.
The 2019 South West Bike Trek is expected to follow the below schedule:
- Day 1 Sunday 13 October – Subiaco to Fairbridge
- Day 2 Monday 14 October – Fairbridge to Preston then back to Fairbridge
- Day 3 Tuesday 15 October – Fairbridge to Harvey
- Day 4 Wednesday 16 October – Harvey to Eaton
- Day 5 Thursday 17 October – Eaton to Busselton
- Day 6 Friday 18 October – Busselton to Margaret River
- Day 7 Saturday 19 October – Margaret River to Augusta
Please remember that this trek is a charity bike ride that will be conducted at a leisurely pace. The trek is not a race in any form and the group will work together to ensure each other’s well-being. Last year the Southwest Bike Trek raised an incredible $36,376 for CLCRF and over the years it has raised close to $700,000 in total! This year is our target is $40,000.
There is a daily cost of $30 which covers meals, accommodation, fuel etc. If you participate in the entire ride Sunday to Saturday it’s a total of $175. For participants of the entire trek we are endeavouring to provide a jersey. For those participating for only one or two sections there may be a small cost involved to receive the jersey. In order to accommodate this, registration will have to be paid by Wednesday 28 August to allow manufacturing and delivery.
