An old classic, reimagined in gravel

Since 1999, Bike it to Ballidu has been a beloved bike event that welcomes everyone in the Wongan Hills area. Bike it to Ballidu has always been about bringing people together and having fun, and now, in 2023, it’s time to take it to the next level. The Bike it to Ballidu committee, along with WestCycle and the Shire of Wongan-Ballidu, are teaming up to turn this event into incredible gravel adventures with something for everyone over 12km, 30km, 85km and 155km.

Wongan-Ballidu is a hidden gem of epic landscapes less than two hours from Perth. Think rolling hills, vast canola fields, sparkling lakes, farmer’s paths, salt plains, wildflower sanctuaries, forested growths, Mid-West scrub – it’s mindblowing vistas whichever way you point your bike and eyeballs! 👀

But that’s not all – we’re putting the fun into ‘Fungan Hills’ with novelty segments, including gravel pits, speed traps, needle in the haystack and other on-course challenges…🙌

There’ll be prizes galore for best fancy-dressed teams and individuals in keeping with the Bike it to Ballidu tradition that has always encouraged teams to get creative and have fun on the bike! 🤡 🚲🚵🕺💃

The Ballidu after-party has acquired mythical status over the years, and we plan to keep it that way, so take advantage of the camping options at the local oval and stay the night or even the weekend! What better way to have a thorough ‘gravel debrief’ than with a bunch of other gravel lords over a cold beverage, local food, as prizes are given with live music in the mix! Can you achieve ‘Ballidude’ status!? 🥷🏻🚴🏻🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️🤘🏻😉

It’s all about pushing the limits, creating lifelong memories and cultivating a sense of community.
