The Beverley – Saturday 14 October, 11am
WA’s oldest road race “The Beverley” began as The Rover Road Race of 1897 was the brainchild of Percy Armstrong, noted rider and entrepreneurial owner of the Rover Cycling Agency.
Running almost every year till 1999 in varying distances and formats, it returned in 2016 as a 116km Handicap, won by multi world champion Cameron Meyer.
Note: U15 and U17 juniors are not allowed to ride this race due to the distance being more than what those ages are allowed to ride over.
