Dams ChallengeLake View Tce Cvan Pk, 49 Lake Rd, Champion Lakes WA 6111, Australia

The Dams Challenge was conceived in a cafe on the terrace in Fremantle on Saturday morning in 1998 - Was it possible to incorporate the five metropolitan dams into a single day's ride? Intrepid rider Lindsay O'Brien thought so, and thus, The Dams Challenge was created!

The event offers a course for everyone: The 5 Dams Challenge, 3 Dams Challenge, and 2 Dams Challenge! All three Dams Challenge courses offer tough climbing and utterly thrilling descents!

AUD $139 - AUD $249

  • Did the Grand Slam 80k in 2019

    An 80km ride through undulating countryside gaining about 900m over the distance. Participants were well supported by signage, refreshment stops every 20km and contact details in case of mechanical breakdown or other incidents.

  • Did the Grand Slam 40k in 2019

    I had a really good time I thought it was a great easygoing atmosphere, well organized. I did it by myself though and although that was a bit daunting for a first timer everything was so well organized it didnt matter.
