The Terra Australis Bike Epic is a bikepacking race 6,000 kilometres down the eastern regions of Australia starting at Cape York, the northern tip of Australia and finishing at Wilsons Promontory the mainland southern most point. The route is 70% off road through sometimes rugged and remote country with limited water and food re-supply options. The event is principally suited to experienced multi-day ultra endurance riders who have a demonstrated capacity of racing and enduring the constant daily challenges, dealing with the elements and one’s changing emotional space.
