323KM, Bunbury-Brunswick-Collie-Nannup-Bunbury

This is a long ride with a morning tea break in Collie followed by a long lunch break in either Bridgetown or Nannup, depending on how busy it is. 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)

After lunch Continue to Nannup then to Cundinup, back on to South West Highway north of Mullalyup, through Donnybrook and home to Bunbury for a total distance of 323 Km for about 4.5 ~ 5 riding hours, depending on speed.
