Bibbulmun in 16 Days

Bibbulmun Track Record

Most hikers take several months to cover WA's famous 1,000km Bibbulmun Track, but Perth school teacher Jono Ride managed to do it in just over two weeks, despite not setting out to break records.

Exceeds 58km per day. This site needs a thumbs up click-thing. Thanks for posting, Overlandman.

Epic.

I’ve just done the Cape to Cape in 4 nights. Could easily do 3. I plan on doing it yo-yo this time next year in 6 nights. Starting and finishing at Leeuwin.

Is the challenge to yo-yo the Bibbulmun in 30? Oh *&%$#!.
