GULF TO GULF 2022
2 RIDES CONFIRMED
30 days to ride across Australia's remote outback from Port Augusta SA via Birdsville to Karumba
4 May to 6 June 2022

The BIKE 'N WHEELS EXPEDITION, one of Australia's great bike challenges, blazes a trail Gulf-to-Gulf across the heart of our amazing continent.
These ancient lands reflect the heritage of Australia's First Peoples who lived out there admirably well - and the courage, tragedies and successes of European explorers like the famed but unfortunate Burke and Wills - and the settlers who forged their existence in what was for them, a land of unforgiving remoteness.
The ride can be considered to have 4 stages, each about one week:
Week One explores the majestic Flinders Ranges to reach the desert railhead of Marree.
Week Two traverses the legendary Birdsville Track.
Week Three rolls across Queensland's vast Channel Country to Mt Isa.
Week Four rides the Gulf Country to Normanton and Karumba.
The most recent ride took place in May-June 2019 with 13 riders. Of these, 4 are returning for 2022!
