BEYOND BANK MS NIGHT RIDE – by the organisers of CAGF
Adding to our event management list, we are proud to be associated with Multiple Sclerosis WA since their inaugural MS Ocean Ride, 6 years ago. In 2015 we are proud to once again be in partnership with them to bring to you the unique Beyond Bank MS NIGHT RIDE which is on the 10th of April 2015.
Two distances to choose from, 70 km for the progressive rider and 40 km for the developing and social rider. The Night Ride allows riders to capture scenes around the Canning and Perth estuaries which are often unknown and pathways and routes which make for a great Friday night adventure for family and friends – and all for a good cause to assist people with Multiple Sclerosis.Click here to view more information and register

CAGF 2015 – New Date – 17th May 2015
New to CAGF 2015 – three Grand Fondo routes:
- Piccolo Fondo – 40 km
- Medio Fondo – 80 km
- Gran Fondo – 120 km
The Piccolo will be designed with the focus on the Armadale plains and the vistas that it allows. Specifically for developing riders wishing to do a Grand Fondo in Perth.
The Medio is yet another development ride for those who did CAGF 2013 and 2014 and wanting that extra challenge and kick. Defined in 2015 with a KOM / QOM segment as well as a Tarmac Sprint section.
The Gran as its name implies will be our 2015 signature route with epic and scenic climbs in excess of 2200 metres. Yet another development from CAGF 100 with the change of 2 KOM / QOM segments and possible 2 Tarmac Sprint sections. Something for the hill climbers and the flat landers for 2015!
