18 – 21 October
4 Day MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE
The Cape to Cape is Australia’s largest longest running and most popular four day MTB stage race.
Plan your preparation for this event with a stay at Holberry House near Margaret River Western Australia,
It’s on this October from the 18th to the 21st and features an iconic riding experience that includes access to stunning private stunning trails, vineyard visits, brewery finishes and some of the warmest hospitality the region has to offer.
Stages range from 50 to 63 kilometres over the four-day event taking riders through unique landscapes of forest and coastal trails each morning. A mix of fast flowing single trail, farm tracks, groomed downhill trails and fire trails – many through private land that can only be ridden while racing the Cape to Cape. Afternoons are then free to explore the region’s other unique attractions.
It starts at Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and finishing four days later at the famous Colonial Brewery, the course makes its way through a network of trails along the coast, through National Parks, forest, farm lands, mountain bike parks, and bush before finishing four days later back at Margaret River.
There’s nothing too technical and it’s easily ridable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and MTB skills.
