After having huge success in previous years, we are so excited for the South West Bike Trek to be back in 2019!
The 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 trek co-coordinator and CLCRF member, Eric Maddock, with the help of Lions and Rotary Clubs and is expected to follow the schedule below:
- 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, although all riders need to be able to ride at least 20kph. The trek is not a race in any form and the group will work together to ensure each other’s wellbeing.
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 the target to reach is $40,000.
Costs: There is a daily cost of $30 which covers meals, accommodation, fuel and other expenses. If you participate in the entire ride Sunday to Saturday it’s a total of $175. The sponsorship component minimum that is required but not limited to, is $300 if you wish to take part in the entire trek or $100 for one section/day.
If you want to have a great cycling experience and explore the beautiful South West region at a leisurely pace, while raising money for child cancer research register now!
You can also go to www.everydayhero.com and create your very own Bike Trek supporter page. Then you can ask friends/family to donate towards your bike trek participation. This takes all the hassles out of following up and handling money.
I loved being a part of the Bike Trek last year because I got to see first-hand what this event is all about, it’s an amazing experience bringing people of all different ages together to raise awareness and much needed funds for Child Cancer research. We had many laughs, got some great exercise and raised a lot of money for an incredible cause! Looking forward to participating again this year.
