After huge success in previous years, Western Australia’s premier charity bike ride, the South West Bike Trek, is back for its 21st anniversary, with riders set to make the epic 600km journey from Perth to Augusta and raise vital funds for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF). It is the biggest purely volunteer run fundraising event for childhood cancer in WA and since it started in 2002, has raised over $770,000 for child cancer research.
This year’s trek will begin on Sunday, 9 October from Sir James Mitchell Park, South Perth Foreshore with riders traveling across some of the most spectacular roads in WA before winding up in Augusta on Saturday, 15 October.
The 2022 South West Bike Trek – Live Ride is expected to follow the schedule below:
The South West Bike 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.
Costs: There is a daily cost of $40 which covers meals, accommodation, fuel and other expenses. If you participate in the entire ride Sunday to Saturday it’s a total of $190. 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.
