The BPS 600 is a 600km BRUTAL MTB/ Gravel ride, covering SEQs most challenging terrain. The first edition of the BPS 600 was held late December 2021. Formally known as the BPS Hunt 600, as it was originally run as a QLD alternative to the postponed Hunt 1000. The BPS Hunt 600 quickly gained in popularity, leading to a second edition held in July 2022.
This year, BPS is holding the BPS 600 & BPS 400. The 600 following a different route to last years 600 event. The course is brutal and not for the faint of heart. 600km with 11, 000m. We had a total of 7 riders finish the entire course in 2021 and 5 riders finishing the course in 2022.
We also want to serve riders with a course that’s a little less challenging, the 400 course has been redesigned, being a much easier route (when it’s not raining ;). Although the route is remote in parts, there is still a number of towns/ shops along the way. Food & water must be taken seriously.
Looking for a slightly shorter route? Try the 2022 BPS 400!

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.
