Bike it to Ballidu Gravel

Saturday 23rd September 2023

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 now, in 2023, it’s time to take it to the next level. The Bike it to Ballidu committee, along with WestCycle and the Shire of Wongan-Ballidu, are teaming up to turn this race into an incredible gravel adventure.

But that’s not all – we’re 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.
