In February 2018, MSWA introduced a new and exciting event to the Great Southern region of Western Australia.
The MSWA Albany Ride inspired the local community and far beyond, and this unique cycling event was deemed a resounding success. It is with pride, and a demonstration of commitment to Albany and the Great Southern region, that MSWA brings it back in 2019.
The cycling routes take participants through scenic Albany and the various courses explore some of its most iconic spots, including the ANZAC National Centre, the Historic Whaling Station, the Wind Farm and Middleton Beach - just to name a few. There are ride distances to suit everyone, including families, beginners, weekend warriors and experienced amateur cyclists.
- 10km Family Ride
- 40km Ride
- 80km Challenge
The start/finish line for all Rides is at Emu Point, which is turned into an 'Event Zone' with a great sense of community spirit; including food and beverage vendors and children's activities, massages and music.
All funds, raised by the MSWA Albany Ride, stay in Albany and the Great Southern region. MSWA's dedicated outreach centre in Albany provides support to those people living with MS and all neurological conditions. Funds enable tangible support, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and counselling.
