Ride with Jens Voight with the Tour of Margaret River Breakaway 

The Tour of Margaret River Breakaway is a 4-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: (below information is based on the 2018 route and may change in 2019)

  • Medio Fondo. A  60km 747m ride that starts and finishes at Kirup. You’ll pass through Donnybrook, rolling past enchanting hobby farms, orchards and dairy farms. With energising climbs, thrilling descents and magnificent views, you will be captivated by this ride. Charley Creek Road and the Upper Capel Road are both ranked in Ride WA’s top 10 roads in Western Australia.
  • The Arrival. 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.
  • 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.
