Your Spring Classic Challenge.
In Australia there was a bicycle race that ran from 1897 to 1999. It was hard racing in the days of gravel tracks, and thought to be the toughest race in Australia. It started in Beverley. We celebrate that race with a bike weekend. Be Heroic and come ride with us.
Slow down and step back in time. Historical towns, historical bikes and some beautiful country side. We celebrate the history. We love those old bikes. We look forward to the new heroes making the event another historic ride.
All bikes welcome- e- bikes, Gravel, steel, road racer, mountain bike, Cyclocross- something for everyone!
See where the wheatbelt and great races began. Enjoy quiet roads, riverside riding, checkpoints in historic towns- its beautiful Western Australia.

The Beverley Heroic cycling race & bicycle event.
The Rover Road Race of 1897 was the brainchild of Percy Armstrong, noted rider and entrepreneurial owner of the Rover Cycling Agency. The gruelling event of 116 miles over rough turn of the century roads proved popular and was later re-named The Beverley to Perth Race - or simply the “Beverley”.
