This is a self-supported pannier tour from Albany to Perth organised by the Cycle Touring Association of WA (Inc). Leave your troubles behind as you tour in a leisurely fashion through some of Western Australia’s most scenic spots, including tall timbered forests, tranquil beaches, native wildlife, caves, and historic towns. The total distance is 850 km over twelve cycling days, with three rest days at Albany, Pemberton Forest Stay, and the Dunsborough Beach YHA, to allow participants to take in the more picturesque spots. The proposed route will be on bitumen roads, using as many quiet back roads as possible. There will be many occasions when the Munda Biddi and Rail Trails are an option. If you are participating in this type of tour for the first time, you will gain a real sense of achievement as you conquer what seemed at first to be impossible, and find friendships and camaraderie seldom experienced elsewhere. Please note that the 40th Anniversary Full Pannier Tour is open to CTA members only.
