The Ride2Nowhere presented by WeChat is the perfect race where Racing Snakes and Weekend Warriors meet to compete for Fun!

Long (60km per day) and Short (40km per day) route options makes it the ideal race to dust off the Winter cob webs and get ready for the Spring season.

One of the big draw cards of the Ride2Nowhere is relaxed atmosphere at the race village and between riders. The local community gets involved and also benefits from the event by providing local hospitality and entertainment to participants through out the weekend.

The Ride2nowhere route offers challenge and reward for experienced riders as well as weekend warriors. The route follows a cloverleaf format with each day’s starts & finish from the same venue in McGregor.

With relatively short riding times per day it meant that riders will finish by lunch time, leaving plenty time to experience the charm of McGregor with their loved ones during the afternoon.

More or less 30% of the daily route is on open gravel roads or jeep tracks, with a good combination of flat, rolling hills and one or two steeper climbs. 70% of the daily route is single track and cattle paths. The terrain is mostly hard rock formation and few loose gravel sections. (No crazy stuff, just mother nature providing us with some fun tracks and trails!)

Not just another mountain bike race... McGregor showed off her ability to play host to a mountain bike event, which WILL be sold out next year, so please enter to avoid disappointment.

Nowhere but actually somewhere...
What a fantastic event as I not only surprised myself fitness wise but also had a whale of a time.
