About this ride
The Kalamunda circuit has always been a favourite location for the Cyclo Sportif series as it offers teams some great challenges riding through the picturesque Perth hills and is a great opportunity to put your legs to the test before the 2014 Dams Challenge.
We always strive to offer a variety in the courses and 2014 is no exception. The A & B distances offer riders the unique opportunity (and additional challenge) of starting at the bottom of the Zig-Zag Scenic Drive before setting off through Kalamunda and out to Mundaring and Pickering Brook.
