Rider Information

The Ride

A challenging 1200km bike ride over 7 days, across terrain that personifies outback Queensland, meanders through remote local towns and brings you in touch with personalities at the heart of Australia’s community culture.

The Dates

RideWest usually takes place in April every second year, however due to the circumstances surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), we had to postpone the 2020 ride.  The exciting news is that with restrictions easing in QLD in July, we’ve been able to confirm that RideWest 2020 will take place from the 3 – 9 October 2020.
