The 2019 Southwest Bike Trek is set to start on Sunday 13 October in Subiaco near the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) office, and finish in Augusta on Saturday 19 October. As in previous years, it is organised by trek organiser and CLCRF Foundation member, Eric Maddock, with the help of Lions and Rotary Clubs.
The trek will commence in Subiaco and a team of bike riders will make their way to Fairbridge on Sunday 13 October. On Monday the 14th, riders will travel to Preston then back to Fairbridge. From Fairbridge they will head over to Harvey. On Wednesday, from Harvey they will ride to Eaton. They will travel from Eaton to Busselton the following day. From Busselton they will travel to Margaret River and finish at the Augusta Lighthouse on Saturday 19 October.
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

In order to accommodate this, registration will have to be paid by Wednesday 28 August to allow manufacturing and delivery.
