Ride Details

Cape to Cape is a 4 day MTB stage race in the beautiful Margaret River.

Cape to Cape MTB Race is a 4 day MTB multi-stage endurance race in the Margaret River region, Western Australia. The Margaret River is a popular tourist destination with lots to see and do. You’ll have access to stunning private trails, vineyard visits, brewery finishes and some of the warmest hospitality the region has to offer.

Cape to Cape was first held in 2008 with 100 riders, and has grown to be Australia’s longest running and biggest MTB multi-stage endurance race, now with over 1000 riders each year. It is held as a race, but is seen as more of a ride, with many riders returning each year to attend.  The course doesn’t require a high level of technical difficulty, which means that as long as you’re reasonably fit and have some MTB skills, you’ll be good to enter!

Starting at Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and finishing four days later at the famous Colonial Brewery, the course makes its way through a network of trails along the coast, through National Parks, forest, farm lands, mountain bike parks, and bush before finishing back at Margaret River. Roughly 210km and 2,500m of climbing in total, each day’s riding is between 45km and 65km and has its own special terrain and environment to keep things interesting with a mix of fast flowing single trail, farm tracks, groomed downhill trails and fire trails – many through private land that can only be ridden while racing the Cape to Cape.

Stage 1 – Cape Leeuwin. This day starts and finishes at Cape Leeuwin, with 47km distance and 908m of climbing.

Stage 2 – Boranyup Forest. This day starts and finishes at Leewin Estate,  with 63km distance and 575m of climbing.

Stage 3 – Margaret River. This day starts and finishes at Margaret River, with 45km distance and 560m of climbing.

Stage 4 – Cowaramup. This day starts and finishes at Colonial Brewery, outside Cowaramup, with 57km distance and 521m of climbing.

Cape to Cape MTB Race is a sister event to the Port to Port in NSW and the Reef to Reef in QLD.

This cycling event looks like a great excuse for a long weekend away, especially with all those breweries and wineries!
