IT’S ALL HAPPENING AT FERNDALE EVENT CENTRE
The Final Fling weekend is going to be huge!
Unlike other years, we’re setting up our event centre at Ferndale for the full weekend. Alongside our Sponsor Expo, we’ll have the popular Kid’s Skills Clinic (always a sellout so book a place here soon), as well as our Kid’s Fling – which in previous years has been on Sunday.
For the big kids Saturday will see us host the Rolloff World Championships and the Bundy Clock Challenge – the perfect way to get your legs prepped for Sunday’s racing. Check out our Draft Event Schedule so you don’t miss any of the fun!
BIKING THE BOOT – 12 MAY TO 1 JUNE 2018
Our 2017 Biking The Boot Tour was just fantastic. Imagine three weeks of travelling through the Italian countryside and enjoying delicious local cuisine and wines…
But don’t just take our word for it though. Here’s what some of our Biking The Booters had to say:
“The scenery was jaw-dropping, the food fantastic, the organisation was impeccable and the accommodation was perfect. And to top it off, the group was a really fun bunch to ride with. It truly was the trip of a lifetime.” Gregg, Canberra
“Great route, brilliant group, seamless logistics and fun all the way. An astounding mountain bike holiday by any measure. I’m already clearing the diary for next year!” Mark, Barcelona
