Ride Details

Challenge yourself with over 2000m of climbing with the Dirty Dozen Perth!

Dirty Dozen Perth is a 1-day cycling event that challenges cyclists to climb 13 of Perth’s toughest climbs on the south side of the Perth River.

There are 2 courses to take. The 100km Dirty Dozen with over 2000m of climbing over 100km or the shorter Dirty Half Dozen with 1000m of climbing over 50km.

Each climb has been handpicked for its brutality, which means that this ride will test your legs, lungs and mettle. Some climbs are well known, and some aren’t.

This cycling event (both routes) starts and finishes at Kelmscott, at the local Dome cafe. The ride organisers encourage you to stay for lunch and share stories with your fellow Dirty Dozen survivors before limping home!

This is not an organised cycling event. It is a self-supported and unmarshalled ride where you all start and finish at the one location, and follow the course.

This is a gruelling challenge of the meanest climbs in the Perth hills.

You’ll find other cycling events, like the Dirty Dozen Perth, in our online Cycling Event Calendar.
