2020 On Your Bike - Tiny Towns Tour

Saturday October 3 - Sunday October 11

550km: Main Events, On Your Bike, Road bike - Rolling, Tour, Touring bike

Tour Brochure, Entry Form Following undertaking a two-day reconnoitre of the proposed 2020 Tiny Towns tour route and consulting with all the relevant country stakeholders, the On Your Bike Team has decided the tour will proceed as planned. The tour will be conducted under Western Australia's prevailing COVID-19 Phase 4 restrictions: Indoor gathering capacity limits based upon the 2 square metre per person rule; Continuation of physical distancing where possible; Maintenance of good personal hygiene. The reduced gathering capacity of venues we will be utilising are able to manage our anticipated participant numbers, however it may necessitate closer proximity to fellow participants during the service of the seated evening meal. With transmission of the Coronavirus still a possibility within our community, if you feel uncomfortable in this regard, maybe you should re-evaluate the risks and consequently your decision on participating in this tour. Note: The tour Entry Form has fillable form fields. It can be filled in online, saved and then emailed to oyb@ctawa.asn.au If you can't fill in the form due to device "issues" you can try using this alternative (Contact Angus, webmaster@ctawa.asn.au, if you need any help). Bright skies and big horizons await this cycling adventure exploring open landscapes and the tiny country towns dotted throughout Western Australia's north eastern Wheatbelt region. Broad acre dry land farming is the backbone of this region, producing around 40% of the State's grain harvest. Cycling along quieter, sealed rural roads, this loop tour out of Calingiri predominately follows the designated tourist route of the Wheatbelt Way trail. Participants will have the opportunity to see open farmlands, rocky outcrops, salt lakes and wildflowers, as well as having time to visit museums, collections, historical sites and heritage trails within some of these smaller country towns located in this less travelled area of our State. The tour will overnight in the towns of Wongan Hills, Koorda, Beacon, Mukinbudin (Rest Day), Bencubbin, Wyalkatchem and Goomalling. For general enquiries, please contact: Trevor Knox Tour Leader 2020 On Your Bike - Tiny Towns Tour GPX route files are available here ...
