The Gibb Challenge


Welcome to the 2024 campaign of The Gibb Challenge: a socially competitive 660 kilometre team relay cycling event raising community awareness and funds for the Kyle Andrews Foundation (KAF). We’re pretty freakin’ stoked to be part of the Kyle Andrews Foundation’s 25th anniversary celebrations and help the final stage development of their campgrounds in Busselton’s ‘Holy Mile’.

  • Friday 10th May, 2024 – Cable Beach Sundowner (Broome Surf Life Saving Club)
  • Saturday 11th May, 2024 – Team Registration & Safety Briefing (Spinifex Hotel Derby)
  • Sunday 12th May, 2024 – DAY ONE: Derby to Imintji Campgrounds
  • Monday 13th May, 2024 – DAY TWO: Imintji Campgrounds to Mount Elizabeth Station
  • Tuesday 14th May, 2024 – DAY THREE: Mount Elizabeth Station to Ellenbrae Station
  • Wednesday 15th May, 2024 – DAY FOUR: Ellenbrae Station to Home Valley Station
  • Thursday 16th May, 2024 – DAY FIVE: Home Valley Station to El Questro
  • Friday 17th May, 2024 – Day of Rest & Exploration (El Questro Wilderness Park) 

Form a team of between 2-6 riders and up to 2 non-riding supporters to take on the ultimate cycling adventure through the stunning Kimberley region of Western Australia. The Gibb Challenge will lead you on a life defining Kimberley adventure from the deep port town of Derby, to the world acclaimed million acres El Questro Wilderness Park. Overnight camping and fellowship at Imintji Community, Mount Elizabeth Station, Ellenbrae Station, Home Valley Station and El Questro.

Early Bird Rider registration costs are $700 (including GST) and include all your meals, camping, wilderness park fees and an event riding jersey. Non-riding support team members are also $700 (including GST), with the same catering and camping benefits but with an event t-shirt instead of a jersey. Accompanying children under 12 years are FREE!

Mate, there’s no better value mountain bike event in Australia.

Riders are encouraged to have a red hot crack at raising $1000 each for the Kyle Andrews Foundation (KAF), before joining our week long celebrations and fat tyre fellowship along the iconic Gibb River Road. Your non-riding supporters aren’t obliged to reach a personal fund-raising milestone, but they’re more than welcome to rattle the tin for the KAF. Once each rider’s raised their $1000, they might want to nominate a second registered charity to share the fund-raising efforts, or just keep smashing it for the Kyle Andrews Foundation.

If you want to be part of this amazing community event but don’t want to ride, how about joining us as a Bloody Heroic Volunteer? Your time and effort are so valued, there’s no cost for your participation.
