242Km, Bunbury to Pinjarra, Dwellingup, Harvey

This is a short run using a few back roads into Pinjarra. The Eden Vale tea rooms make for a great place to eat lunch.

This trail is one I haven't yet tried, but the roads around this area are usually pretty good. And there's plenty of main road mileage for clear, fast runs, if that's what you're into.

This is also a good run for small parties or a single bike day out. If anyone tries it, please let us know what its like and this page can be updated.

Much of the ride is on major roads, including the Coalfields Highway to the Worsley turnoff. Riders should note that the speed on this highway has been reduced to 100Km/H.

After a 9:30 assembly at the Shell Gateway on the Old Coast Road, plan for a ten o'clock departure through Australind. Turn on to Paris Rd and proceed to the highway, left then right onto Clifton Road to cut across to Brunswick Junction.

Take a right turn onto SW Highway, travel south to Roelands then left onto the Coalfields Highway and on to the Worsley turnoff. Follow Gastaldo Road to the turnoff onto Mornington Road to Collie

Coffee at Macca's is a good idea, and it allows people to fill up with fuel and use the loos.

Take Preston Road out of Collie, then Collie-Burn road to McAlinden, left onto the Boyup Brook road and through to Boyup Brook. Go on to Bridgetown for lunch at the pub (if too busy, Nannup pub is good, too)
