GULF TO GULF
30 days to ride across Australia's remote outback between Port Augusta, Birdsville and Karumba.
Join one of Australia's great bike challenges, tracing 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 has 4 stages, each about a week:
Week One explores the majestic Flinders Ranges, riding from Port Augusta 430km to reach the desert railhead of Marree in 6 days (7th day is rest).
Week Two traverses the legendary Birdsville Track, 520km of gravel in 8 days including a rest day at Mungerannie.
Week Three rolls 700km across Queensland's vast Channel Country to Mt Isa in 7 days. Rest days are before and after in Birdsville and Mt Isa.
Week Four rides 570km in 6 days through the Gulf Country to Cloncurry, Normanton and Karumba (followed by an end-of-ride rest day).
The most recent rides took place in May-June and June-July 2022 with 20-24 riders. Ages ranged from 30s to 70s with the median age in the early-60s.
Outbike's first G2G event was in 2005.
