Training Camp 2024

Join a Gravel and Road Cycling Training Camp Experience in the Beautiful South West of Western Australia!

Join our group of like-minded cyclists as we traverse the beautiful country that is the Wellington Forrest National Park on gravel and sealed roads whilst raising funds for our varied community causes, from Wednesday 28th August – Saturday 31st August.

The Cycling Development Foundation delivers programs across diverse cultural contact points including First Nation people, youth development, and women in sport, where we embrace learned resilience and self-improvement through cycling as a modality for health, fitness & well-being.

Our programs work in at-risk communities, alongside junior developing athletes, and senior elite cycle racing programs that service a large cross section of the communities we work in.

Entries to the Training Camp 2024 are now open.

Limited to just 40 riders, we offer a supported ride that crosses the areas of Wellington Forrest, Collie State Forrest, Mumballup State Forrest and Preston National Park.

Spanning 4 days of riding, we offer cyclists a unique event that will take you on a journey through the South West’s beautiful forests via sealed and gravel roads, from the Evedon Park Lakeside Retreat.

Cyclists will have 2 group ride options which allow for varied fitness/skill levels and are encouraged to bring both road and gravel/MTB bicycles to the event.
