Pilbara News - - News -

Af­ter a gru­elling 3000km trek through the Kim­ber­ley and Pil­bara out­back, a group of riders fin­ished their 2016 Postie Bike Chal­lenge in Broome on Mon­day.

Since 2002, riders from Aus­tralia, New Zealand, Bri­tain, Sin­ga­pore and the US have taken on the chal­lenge to ride a small-ca­pac­ity mo­tor­cy­cle vast dis­tances across the rugged Aus­tralian land­scape, all in the name of adventure and char­ity.

This year, 20 riders signed up to the chal­lenge, and em­barked on a jour­ney from Perth via Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der through the Kim­ber­ley and Pil­bara re­gions. The group left Perth on Septem­ber 4 and even­tu­ally made their way to Broome. Or­gan­iser Dan Gri­d­ley said the ride had been a great suc­cess. The mo­tor­bikes will be do­nated to Broome Ro­tary Club.
