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) view that ride here.
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.

The entry fee/ donation is non refundable, unless the event is cancelled.
Remember, the GPX file is nothing more than a line on a map to be used at your own discretion, at a time and date of your choice, and in association with your own due diligence. By utilising the GPX file, you are accepting full responsibility for your own safety. The GPX file comes with no guarantees with regards to the condition, safety or even existence of a trail. Should you choose to ride the route you do so at your own risk.
This ride is unsupported, there will be no one to help you besides yourself and other riders. No GPS trackers will be provided. Basically, it is 100% your responsibility to stay safe, fuelled, and out of trouble. I, Max Hobson, as a ride leader, will assist in mechanical repairs and help out with any issues that I can, but I may be out of contact for significant periods of time, so I cannot be relied upon for help or assistance.
Myself, other riders or The Bike Pack Shop, and any other affiliated businesses WILL NOT be liable or take responsibility for any issues during the event. Please be clear of this before you commit.
Anyway, this event is supposed to be a fun way to meet new friends, get inspired, and have a bloody cracker of a time!
We hope to see you there as we cannot wait to meet the bike packing community in Australia!

Regarding entry cost – The small fee goes towards the handling, route creation and countless hours of effort that go into running an event like this. I organise and manage just about everything, besides the help a few amazing people. This small ‘donation’ helps me better improve the event and ensure its the best experience possible. I love hosting the BPS 600 and hope you understand this small fee.
