1.2 SWAN VALLEY

About this page

\"\"

 

We have been unsuccessful in securing a date for the Cyclo Sportif Swan Valley at this stage. The Shire of Swan is unwilling to approve more than one cycling event per month in the area and we have been locked out with a racing group having booked out most of the year. This is extremely disappointing and we are attempting to secure a date this year. We will provide more updates as soon as possible.

BWA is excited to announce Cyclo Sportif Swan Valley will feature new course options and a stunning event village location at Oakover Grounds in the heart of the Swan Valley.  Oakover is surrounded by lush lawns, mature trees and the stunning Oakover vineyards.

Cyclo Sportif Swan Valley offers a scenic ride that combines the best of flat, fast roads and the option of new challenging climbs.  There are five course options so there is something for everyone.

THE COURSE

We have introduced additional course options in 2017 to include an extra challenge for riders who want to test their mettle.

The \'hills\' route includes an additional loop riding up Haddrill Road/Weir Road into Brigadoon and down Campersic Road.  This route is very challenging and may not be suitable for all riders.
