30 days to ride across Australia's remote outback between Port Augusta, Birdsville and Karumba.
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 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 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.
