The 2023 Arapiles Cycling Event was very successful.

Thank you to our Volunteers and our Riders.

We had 123 Riders in total.


The 2024 ACE Ride is being planned for SATURDAY October 5th.


The Arapiles Cycling Event is a community bike ride for cyclists of all skill levels.

This year we have added a 75 Kilometre Option. The Route Maps will be published soon.


It is an opportunity for locals and visitors to enjoy the ‘big sky’ views of the Wimmera landscape with Mount Arapiles being the focal point. Based in Natimuk, the 4 Circuits will have you riding through the largely flat landscape, with a few testing hills, amongst the flowering crops and passing local points of interest.

The ACE Ride is a proud supporter of Wimmera Against Cancer in Kids and a portion of the Rider Fees, and donations on the day, will support WACK.

In 2023 we also partnered-with Beyond Blue and “Travelling with Tash”


Wimmera Against Cancer in Kids

Wimmera Against Cancer in Kids is a not-for-profit organisation – helping regional families who have a child with cancer.

WACK can provide financial assistance to ease the burden associated with traveling to & from Melbourne for treatment, with things like fuel and grocery vouchers.

WACK is a regular contributor to Ronald McDonald House, (both Melbourne and Adelaide) which provides an invaluable accommodation service to families whose children are being treated at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Donations from WACK have sponsored rooms at Ronald McDonald House for many years, and helped with the purchase of vital equipment at the Royal Children’s Hospital.
