The Rotary Tour of The Blackwood is a ride, not a race!

The tour organisers have created three courses to challenge a wide range of riders' fitness and experience. The Cozy ride is a family oriented event to encourage community participation and to get beginners onto their bikes! The longer rides are significantly more challenging and are aimed at more experienced riders. All events start and end at the Bridgetown Sports Ground and are electronically timed. The Half and Best and the Full Tour are both challenging rides; these courses run through beautiful farmland, forests, river valleys and pretty townsites. The Full Tour starts at 7am and the Best and Half starts at 8am.

Motorcycle chaperones will be traversing the course throughout each event to assist with rider safety throught the morning.

A water station and light snacks for riders will be available at Nannup only. Riders will need to carry their own water containers. All riders should also carry their mobile phones.

All events will finish at the Bridgetown Sports Ground. There will be food, drinks (including a bar), massages and some great local entertainment to wind up the day in style.

Your participation helps us to raise much needed funds in support of rural youth mental health!
