The York Canola Classic is a picturesque mass-participation recreational ride hosted in the stunning Shire of York, approximately 90km east of the Perth CBD. Riders are invited to choose from a 93km or 52km distance option that will take you on a scenic journey from heart of the Town of York, through to the striking yellow canola fields of the Avon Valley Region.

Riders are invited to enter the York Canola Classic as individuals or as a team, riding for a collective team time. This year, we’re not just celebrating the joy of cyclist; we’re making it a true family affair! We encourage riders to bring their family and friends along to support them and revel in the festivities of our incredible event village. Our aim is to provide an exciting and welcoming environment for everyone to joy.

The event village will be a hub of activity, brimming with family-friendly entertainment for all ages. Savour a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee or sip on a comforting cup of tea as you soak in the surroundings. For our littlest adventurers, we have a range of engaging kids’ activities that will keep them entertained throughout the day. And let’s not forget the post-event celebrations! After conquering the course, it’s time to revel in your achievement. Your entry includes a post-event lunch so join us afterwards at the York Recreation Centre and celebrate with your fellow riders after an awesome day!

“A” Distance is the ultimate Avon Valley adventure! Get ready to enjoy 93km (2 laps) of quiet roads, rolling hills and fantastic scenery – including the iconic canola fields of the greater York Shire.


“A” Distance riders can expect to complete approximately 1200m of climbing in total. Most of this elevation can be found in the first 12km of each lap, after which you will be rewarded with a long, flowing descent. The remainder of the course features a series of small rises and descents, before turning left to return back to the start of the course.

“B” Distance is the perfect option for riders seeking all of the action and scenery of the Canola Classic, over 52km (1 lap) rather than 93km (2 laps). But, not to worry – you’ll still get to enjoy all that this stunning course has to offer!


“B” Distance has something to offer everyone, whether it’s your first ride or your five-hundredth. Don’t miss out on the Canola Classic, and make sure register today!
