Ride Details

Ride with Jens Voight with the Tour of Margaret River Breakaway 

The Tour of Margaret River Breakaway is a 3-day cycling event where you will get to ride with the cycling legend, Jens Voight. If you missed out on a team for the Tour of Margaret River or not wanting to race, then this ride is your chance to still participate.

You’ll still get to ride the same stages as the Tour and arrive at the finish lines in time to watch all of the action unfold as the race comes in. Four days and four sensational routes in the company of a genuine legend. An option was added in 2018 to ride individual days if you can’t make it to all four.

This event is based around Nannup, which is in the Margaret River region. This is a very popular destination for tourists and is a great place to escape to for a holiday.

There are 4 rides on offer:

  • Gold Rush. A  27km 375 m ride that starts and finishes at Nannup. this has one major climb and a great descent back into town.
  • The Kandalee Catapult. A 51km 836m ride that starts at Nannup and finishes. at Greenbushes. This route takes you out of Nannup along the undulating Brockman Highway, then turns you left and upwards onto the iconic Maranup Ford Road. Once you summit Kandalee Hill, the road will catapult you towards the finish line in Greenbushes.
  • Mur De Hay. A 70km 940m ride that starts in Nannup and heads to Balingup via the Curdinup south road. some solid short punchy climbs as you head upstream on the Northside of the Blackwood River.
  • The Cathedral. A 41km 446m ride that starts at Balinup and finishes at Nannup. You’ll get to ride ahead of the racers along the Balingup-Nannup Road. Undulating, winding and scenic, this route is normally one of the South West’s premier tourist drives.

You’ll need a Cycling Australia day membership to participate in this Breakaway event. A shuttle bus is available (at extra cost) to return you to Nannup on Day 2 and Day 3.
