The Beverley to Perth Road Race has been WA’s premier one day endurance race for well over a hundred years.

The 185km route followed the Avon Valley between Beverley and Toodyay before heading through the Darling Ranges and finishing in Perth.

Often the Finish line was often at the historic Peninsular Hotel in Maylands which, as it turns out, is the venue for the WA Historical Cycle Clubs upcoming exhibit!
Annette Kent from the Club joined us to look at the events history and talk about next weekends event.
If you'd like to head down to the exhibit, it's on the 18th & 19th of September at the Dome Café Community Rooms, 219-221 Railway Pde, Maylands.

You'll find it inside the historic Peninsular Hotel in Maylands, opposite the Maylands Train Station.
