Ride Details

Put your legs ‘to the test’ with Perth’s Kalamunda 100


The Kalamunda 100 is known as one of Perth’s most challenging rides because of the sheer number of steep hills you will need to climb! The ride organisers state that this event  has been specifically designed to put your legs to the test and check your fitness before riding the Dams Challenge (a ride that is even more challenging than this one!)

You’ll find 2 courses. The Long (100km and 2100+m elevation gain) and the short (50km with 1000+m elevation gain). Both follow the same route through the rolling undulations with the longer course completing a series of two loops through the majestic hills. Note, this is a recreational ride on open roads and cut off times do apply. If you do continue it will be without traffic management and event support.

You can event this event as a team of up to 9 riders or as an individual.

The Kalamunda 100 starts at Pickering Brook behind Kalamunda, in the stone fruit growing area of the local plums, peaches, cherries and other Orchard fruit of Apples and Pears. 

Leaving from the Pickering Brook Recreation Centre, you’ll then travel through Pickering Brook town, diverting around the back of Repatriation Road, with some undulations before turning left onto the nice steady climb up Patterson Road towards Perth Observatory. Then descending down Walnut Road, turning right onto Aldersyde Road to the river crossing on the low point of the Mundaring Weir Road. Some steady undulations with the descent into and out of the Weir to the turning point at the roundabout near the hotel. Now the roads are reversed with the hard climb out of the weir back to Kalamunda. Then turning onto Glenisla Road with more undulations and fruit trees as you return to Pickering Brook.

This is Lap 1 done! So get ready to repeat this circuit for the full 100 km course. Those finishing now can stop at the Recreation Club and swap out their cleats for a late morning coffee or early beer.

The Kalamunda 100 is held in mid to late February which can be extremely hot. So take note of the weather conditions and make sure that you refill your bottles at the rest stops to stave off cramping.

This event is held in the eastern suburbs of Perth where the Hills are, ie 20km from the CBD and 10km east of the Airport. It is a beautiful part of Perth to visit, and there are some nice cideries and wineries to visit on your way home!

  1. This has been a ride that should not be underestimated for the amount of effort required. i have done this ride twice and the route has evaluated and changed each year. The main feature that has remains the same has been the start and finish location, ie the Pickering Brook sports club, a great place to unwind later.
    Note, the weather can be a factor, ie February can be very warm. It can reach into the high 30’s and riders are pulling out with cramps.
