A new adventure each year!
Since 2002, motorcycle adventurers have taken on the annual challenge of riding a small capacity motorcycle vast distances across the Australian landscape.
World heritage rainforests, deserts, open plains, snowy mountains, river crossing, bitumen roads, dirt roads, corrugations and bulldust provides the backdrop to the Postie Bike Challenge event.
We have had riders from Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Singapore, France and the United States. The one thing they all have in common is a great sense of adventure.
The Postie Bike Challenge is an endurance event on a small motorcycle. Are you up for the challenge?
Brisbane to Adelaide
31 Aug 2024 – 10 Sep 2024
31 Aug 2024 – 10 Sep 2024
We pass through 4 states to get to Adelaide – Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. The route has been carefully selected to take us through secondary roads and small towns.
Travelling through local forests out of Brisbane you will find the landscape change daily, becoming sparse then scorched as we head west into central NSW. There will be occasional dirt roads and we will pass through some remote communities. Our aim will be to take the less travelled route until we hit the great Murray river on the Victoria and NSW border. From here we will snake along the Murray river, through picturesque landscapes and small towns taking a very indirect route into South Australia and our destination, Adelaide.
Adventure is in the journey rather than the destination and this is one not to be missed. At times you will ride with a group; sometimes alone; you will feel remote; a million miles away from civilization; there will be long days on the bitumen; your dirt riding skills might be tested; some days you will travel at full speed (75km/hr!!!) and others will be spent negotiating narrow dirt roads at 30-40km/hr; YOUR MISSION: keep your small motorcycle going for the 3000 kilometres!

good people. good memories …. stories for a lifetime
I just wanted to tell you how much we really enjoyed the trip you organized. It was very well organized and I felt very comfortable at all times that we were in great hands. All three of us had a blast. It was harder than I expected it to be but your hard work and great organization made it a brilliant fun trip. Please thank Andy & Richard (mechanics). They were bloody excellent. It is the first time I have been on such an event where someone who was so capable was able to look after our transport. Normally on a bash it's up to you to fix it if it breaks. Once again, thanks very much and congratulations!
L & I would like to thank you all for organizing this wonderful event, it is something we will never forget!
I would like to thank you all. The Challenge gave me the once in a lifetime opportunity to see Australia. I like my independence but also love the company of great fun-filled people. The challenge enabled me to feel as though I was discovering the outback single handedly but with the added safety of knowing that there would be support when I needed it. Thanks for your support, kindness and humour which added that little bit more to the whole unexpected experience.
Thank you for the support given to all riders, you guys deserve accolades as much as the riders. It certainly is a fantastic challenge. I feel much better for doing the run, more supple, a little fitter and a little lighter. Something like this really show the extra 25 kilos I am carrying. Thank you very much for the great organization.
Thank you and your team for a great adventure - an adventure of a lifetime. It was tough, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I am a far more accomplished rider for having done it. Thanks for the great organization and effort of the team. Let me know when the next one is on - I'll be there!
