2019 EVENT PROGRAM

Get ready for an epic mountain bike trip to the Red Centre. Outback Cycling Easter in the Alice 2019 will be filled with riding (of course), laughs and prizes!

This year we wanted to make the event more than riding, which is why you’ll notice we’ve included either a day or night activity for each day of the race.
