    The inaugural event was held in March 2005. It was created as a unique fundraising event for the Asthma Foundation of Western Australia and has evolved into WA's largest mass participation cycling event. After five years it is now a regular fixture on the WA sports and community calendar.

    Now entering its sixth year the annual HBF Freeway Bike Hike for Asthma will launch the 25th Cycle Instead Bikeweek - the State’s annual week-long celebration of recreational and commuter cycling. The HBF Freeway Bike Hike for Asthma is Western Australia's largest single day cycling event and the third largest cycling event in Australia. With more than 8,000 participants in 2009 the Asthma Foundation of Western Australia is expecting great things in 2010.

    The event caters for beginners through to elite cyclists and includes three options to choose from; the 60km from Kwinana Train Station, the 30km from Belmont Park Racecourse, or 10km Family Ride from Greenwood Train Station with all three rides finishing in the City of Joondalup where there will be plenty of food, drink, music, prizes, entertainment, and much more!

    This event represents a unique opportunity for participants to cycle on the southbound lanes of the Kwinana and Mitchell Freeways free from vehicles. It is also the only time the Graham Farmer Tunnel is open to cyclists as part of the 30km event starting from Belmont Park Racecourse, still a novelty to enjoy. The event caters for all types of cyclists from those who race to families with young children. We encourage you to look through this site and contact us with any questions you may have.
