Bike it to Ballidu Gravel

Saturday 21st September 2024

Bike It to Ballidu originated in 1999 by Matt Osborne. It was originally designed to be a simple fundraising activity for the Ballidu Primary School, a physical challenge with the senior room students. They would ride from Wongan Hills Tourist Information Bay to Ballidu Primary School to fundraise for the school camp. Parents became so excited about the idea they decided to join in and help their children fundraise.

Bike it to Ballidu has been a beloved bike event that welcomes everyone in the Wongan-Ballidu area. Bike it to Ballidu has always been about bringing people together and having fun, and in 2023 the group teamed up with WestCycle to make the event on GRAVEL and... bigger and better than ever before. The event attracted over 300 riders and 500 visitors to Ballidu over the course of the weekend. 

They are putting the fun into ‘Fungan Hills’ with novelty segments, including gravel pits, speed traps, and even ball pits! The kids should love that one…

The Ballidu after-party has acquired mythical status over the years, and we plan to keep it that way, so take advantage of the camping options at the local oval and stay the night or even the weekend! What better way to have a thorough ‘gravel debrief’ than with a bunch of other gravel lords over a cold beverage, local food, as prizes are given with live music in the mix! Can you achieve ‘Ballidude’ status!? 

It’s all about pushing the limits, creating lifelong memories and cultivating a sense of community.
