Pipeline Challenge 2019
Let us take you on an epic adventure from the red dirt of the Goldfields to the gardens of Perth’s iconic Mundaring Weir. Over five unforgettable days you will trace the golden pipeline which has been delivering fresh water to Kalgoorlie for over a century. More than just a mountain bike ride, the Pipeline Challenge proudly raises awareness and money for West Australian charity Youth Futures who have been supporting at-risk young people for three decades.
In 2019 the Pipeline Challenge will be held from Saturday 4th to Wednesday 8th May. The event is held in Autumn to take advantage of the great mountain biking weather Western Australia offers at this time. A monthly average temperature of 20-22 degrees and 7 days of light rain across the region sounds like perfect mountain biking weather to us.
Your epic ride begins in Kalgoorlie, located 594 km east of Perth. Made famous in the late 1800’s when prospectors Paddy Hannan, Tom Flanagan, and Dan O’Shea discovered gold, the rest is history. Who knows you could be riding over a small fortune as you make your way from Kalgoorlie to Mundaring in the Perth hills. We will camp overnight at Coolgardie, Southern Cross, Merredin and Northam.
