The race, which began in 1925, is the only true remaining handicap event in WA. It is steeped in tradition and is the premier road race on the Western Australian cycling calendar.
The handicap format gives everyone a chance to get to the finish line first.
The historic race begins in the WA coal mining town of Collie, 200km south of Perth, and heads through hilly terrain towards Mumballup for 21km before turning and heading towards the township of Donnybrook. This is the halfway point. Riders then turn and return back to Mumballup. The last 21km of the course is very arduous through the hills to the finish line in the main street of Collie.
A family day with entertainment for the children, Fashions on the Field, great prizes and a live band playing all your favourite tunes after the last race.
Full TAB and bookmakers, bar, canteen, EFTPOS.
Gates open 12pm. Racing from 1pm.
