Get revved up for the Postie Bike ChallengeAustralia
Negotiate narrow dirt roads, career around snowy alpine passes and wobble over water crossings in deep rainforest – all from the seat of a diminutive 105cc Honda motorcycle. Alongside 50 other mavericks who have a taste for the open road you’ll tackle 3,500 kilometres of sand, gravel and dust on the Postie Bike Challenge, although mercifully you’ll also have a full support team behind you if (and when) things get a little hairy. After each day spent with wind whipping your face and Australia’s rugged landscapes sailing by, you’ll pitch a tent in rodeo grounds before recounting the events of the past 24 hours with your new pals over a catered dinner.
This 10-day outback odyssey traces a different route every year, and has raised more than AU$1 million for charity since its inception in 2002. Rustle up the AU$5,650 entry fee and experience a two-wheeled endurance event like no other.
- Navigating your way across 3,500 kilometres through remote Australia s in the name of charity
- Getting to know the other riders at the end of the day over a cold beer
- The organisers supply you with the bike – you just need a motorcycle license
- Your rump won’t thank you at the end of 3,500 kilometres
The entry fee is AU$5,650.
