This event is part of the Kaya Collie celebrations.
The race, which began in 1925, is the only true remaining handicap event in WA. It is steeped in tradition and is the premier road race on the Western Australian cycling calendar.
The handicap format gives everyone a chance to get to the finish line first.
The historic race begins in the heart of town on Throssell Street, opposite the Crown Hotel at 12.00pm. The riders will head through hilly terrain towards Mumballup for 21km before turning and heading towards the township of Donnybrook. This is the halfway point. Riders then turn and return back to Mumballup. The last 21km of the course is very arduous through the hills to the finish line in the main street of Collie. The riders will complete 104 kms in total.
