The Melanoma Bike Bash is a life-changing ride to make a difference
The Melanoma Bike Bash is a 2-day off-road cycling event from Perth to Northam and returns along the scenic Kep Track and through the scenic John Forrest National Park outside Perth.
The Kep Track is a heritage trail travelling through the Swan and Avon Valleys. This means it is all off-road, including going through the John Forrest National Park towards Chidlow, Wooroloo, Baker’s Hill (famous for the Pie Shop), Clackline and Spencers Brook.
The fundraising target for this event is $1500, with only a limited number of places, capped at 50. This is a charity ride, with funds being raised for Melanoma WA.
Mission for Melanoma WA is a mountain bike ride on the track that connects Perth to Northam. Can be done on a gravel bike with at least 32mm wide tires. Personally, I would go with the maximum that I could fit on my rig.
You’ll be starting in Midland and travelling through to Muresk, near Northam. You’ll be overnighting in lodge accommodation with all meals included.
This is a 160km round trip ie 80km out and 80km back. Note that the first day climbs, with descents on the second day, joyous. So you’ll be riding for approx 4-5 hrs with numerous stops along the way.
