Gravel Riding in Nannup

Nannup isn’t just home to downhill and enduro trails. If you prefer something with less adrenaline, but also with less chance of breaking a collar bone, you might like to experience all the gravel riding in the hills surrounding the town.

Every year in May, the Seven Gravel Race rolls into town. Boasting 125 km of the most amazing roads that Western Australia has to offer, and a threatening 3000m of climbing, completing the Seven course isn’t for the faint hearted! In 2022 over 1000 riders entered the event. The race has opened the eyes of the cycling community in Western Australia, to the potential that Nannup has as a cycling destination.

Gravel riding in Nannup isn’t just centered around the race either, with gravel roads extending in all directions from town, there is an option, route or course for everybody. Out towards Balingup, along the Blackwood River is all the hills and climbs you can handle. With amazing views over the river valley at the top, and winding roads throughout, you could spend all weekend here and never see another person. The Blackwood Bike Park is your place to go to get the lowdown on the best routes, and roads to travel no matter your fitness levels.
