The 4th annual Regional Environment Cycle Challenge in the Margaret River region of Western Australia is on again in 2012. Â This mountain bike tour is a six day circuit ride through the Margaret River region. Â The idea of the Challenge is to keep off the main roads whilst taking in theÂ sightsÂ and sounds of extremely diverse region.
The Regional Environment Cycle ChallengeÂ starts and ends atÂ Fair HarvestÂ about 5 km NW of Margaret River, on the corner of Carters Road and Burnside Road. Utilising local single track, bush tracks and little used roads the tour will travel from Margaret River to Hamelin Bay and return via the Willyabrup Wine Region, Margaret River and Blackwood River catchments, Boranup Forest and Contos Beach.
The Regional Environment Cycle ChallengeÂ is not a race, rather it is a tour in that there are some hard and some not-so-hard days, some testing single track, but with the emphasis on smelling the roses, not on clocking up the kilometers.Â All riding will be fully supported with most meals prepared atÂ Fair HarvestÂ and delivered hot and delicious to riders en route, campfires at night and a touch of the gourmet at wineries and cafes whenever possible.
Riders bring their own camping gear and this will be transported from one campsite to another.
