Saturday 12 to Sunday 20 September 2015
With bright skies and big horizons the 27th On Your Bike tour will explore the roads and towns within the central Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. Starting in Merredin, we’ll chart a zig-zag course in both a northerly and southerly direction, crossing the Great Eastern Highway a number of times. Cycling on very quiet sealed back country roads you’ll enjoy the undulating landscape as we pass through vast tracts of farmland sown with swaying crops of wheat and colourful yellow canola. Overnighting in Bruce Rock, Kellerberrin, Quairading, Cunderdin, Wyalkatchem, Meckering and Northam, you will also get to see some of the historic water pumping stations built by engineer C Y O’Connor more than 100 years ago along the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail as we enjoy the journey back to Midland.

This will be a full pannier tour —total distance about 750 km.
The dates avoid the busy holiday period, and the weather should be fine — for the Victorian climate. Start and end points utilize the public transport system, thereby avoiding the urban traffic.
