Australia’s Richest Handicap Cycle Race

Cycling has been part of the Goldfields since the courier cyclists in the 1890's carried messages around the Goldfields before the telegraph line came to the region. The 2018 Goldfields Cyclassic & Community Challenge will continue as a two-stage handicap race across the rich and historic landscape of the Western Australian outback from Kalgoorlie-Boulder to Menzies and on to Leonora.

Saturday:  132km Kalgoorlie-Boulder to Menzies - 90th Menzies Classic.  Kalgoorlie race starts from 9.30am (Top End Hannan St).  Riders arrive in Menzies from 1pm.

Sunday:  105km Menzies to Leonora - Leonora Golden Wheels.  Menzies race starts 10am.  Riders arrive in Leonora from 12.30pm.

Held over the WA Day long weekend the two-stage event will be run as two individual races. With approximately $20,000 in prize money up for grabs EACH day across a variety of grades this is a marvelous opportunity for both the professional and amateur rider.

Leonora Golden Gift Carnival

The second stage of the Goldfields Cyclassic - the Leonora Golden Wheels - is timed to coincide with finish of the Golden Gift Foot Race and adds to the excitement of the activities. The Leonora Golden Gift attracts large numbers of people to the region. With over 3000 permanent residents in the Shires of Leonora, Laverton and Menzies an event of this caliber is well supported by locals, with patrons from all over the region descending on Leonora to enjoy the festivities over the three day weekend.
