The Rotary Tour of The Blackwood is a ride, not a race. We have created three courses to challenge a wide range of riders fitness and experience. The Cozy ride is a family oriented event to encourage participation and it will be timed; please note that it starts at the sports ground at 10 am. The longer rides are significantly more challenging and are aimed at more experienced riders. These events will start from Bridgetown Sports Ground and will also be electronically timed. The Half and Best and the full tour are both challenging rides; these courses run through beautiful farmland, forests and river valley. Half and Best will start at 8:00 am and The Full Tour will start at 7:00 am.
All events will finish at the Bridgetown sports ground. There will be food, drinks and entertainment available.
Water stations will be provided at Balingup and Nannup. Your entry includes a light lunch at Nannup. Riders need to carry their own water containers. All riders should also carry their mobile phones.
The Full Tour
This ride is one of the most challenging rides in Western Australia. The challenging hills will take you through some of the most picturesque landscapes WA has to offer. Challenge yourself to the 1700 m of climbing.
Riders participating in the full tour must have left Nannup by 1:00pm.
Cozy starts from the sports ground at 10 am and follows a picturesque undulating course over 25 Km. This ride is suitable for families and beginners.
Half & Best
This ride has similar challenges to the full tour and includes a long descent to the Blackwood River. At half the distance, it will wet your appetite for the full tour next year.
