Gears + Beers continues to attract riders and visitors from Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and beyond. We've got your entertainment covered for the whole weekend!

SATURDAY – Dirty Eve bespoke bike builder night @ The Thirsty Crow Brewery

SUNDAY – Gears + Beers festival (gravel riding and craft beer at the finish line)


Craft beer and picturesque cycling routes.

Festival atmosphere, outstanding locally roasted coffee, accompanied by local regional food plus first class musical entertainment.  Fast becoming a must do event for cyclists around the country who enjoy a quality beer at the end of a ride.

It's for charity

100% of rider registration proceeds go to local charities (distributed by the Wollundry Rotary Club).


We've hand picked a bunch of boutique brewers and wineries from the Riverina and some others from around the country that are proving popular amongst men and women in lycra.

The festival really starts kicking off as riders begin to pour in around lunch-time.  With this line-up of craft beer, cider, regional food and entertainment; it may just be the best finish line you'll ever cross!
