2023 BPS 400 is here!
Sunday, 8th of January 2023
The BPS 400 (hosted by Max Hobson, founder of the Bike Pack Shop) is a challenging but achievable and super scenic bike packing ride through some of South-east Queensland’s most rugged trails. Perfect for adventure-seekers: From beginners to hardcore ultra cycling racers, the BPS 400 has the right amount of gravel, remote sections and rough-as-guts track for all riders to tackle. But it’s not all riding, there are some good old fashioned local country cafes and heritage pubs along the way to quench the thirst. Most riders finish the BPS 400 in about 4 days, (current fastest known time 30 hours 53 minutes).
I created BPS because being outdoors and bikepacking is my ultimate passion, and I wanted to inspire people to experience what bikepacking has to offer. I create exciting bike packing routes and host bike packing rides that wet the appetite of newbies and give experienced bike packers a ride to remember.
