About the Course

The course is 37.5 kilometres plus a couple of hundred metres of neutral rolling to the start line from the Dwellingup Trail and Visitor’s Centre, which will serve as the event hub for rider registration and race briefing. With approximately 660 metres of elevation gain throughout the course, competitors are going to know they were in a race!

The Marrinup Forest Reserves via Dwellingup contain thick stands of Jarrah, riddled with trails, tracks and forestry roads catering to walkers, riders and even horse and carriage. The soil substrate is mostly bauxite, that ubiquitous pea gravel that makes Perth riding conditions so challenging at the best of times. Then there are some great sections defined with dark loamy soils that serve to embolden rider confidence.

The course includes several portions of the Munda Biddi track, forestry trails and plenty of single track including Dwellingup favourites Lolligobbler (contra-flow), Marrinup Loop, Back Door, Stylin’ It Up, Ride Forrest Ride and POW Camp. Trail features include rock gardens, switch backs, creek crossings, log rollovers, berms and some lung busting climbs with pay back thrilling descents.

The trails are rated GREEN and BLUE. There are no BLACK trail elements within the course.

Hire bikes with both hardtail and dual suspension models are available from Waypoints of Dwellingup.

Rules

The competition will be conducted under AusCycling Mountain Bike rules.
