It is hosted by the Rotary club of Perth. It wasn't free to join. It has been a yearly event now for the past 4 years. This year it was $60 to do the ride.
Next year on the 22nd March 2008 the freeway bike hike is being run which is run up the Mitchell Fwy for the 30km option, or the 60km option which does the Kwinana Fwy from Kwinana to Joondalup.
Having this 1 week before the Great Escapade, for me it should be over 100km ride that day. I'll be gunning for that
