About Canteen

We get it. Just when life should be full of possibilities, cancer crashes into a young person’s world and shatters everything. Cancer pushes them back in to the nest, makes them grow up too fast and weighs them down with worries they’re not supposed to have yet.

Canteen is the game changer. We help young people cope with cancer in their family. Through Canteen, they learn to explore and deal with their feelings about cancerconnect with other young people in the same boat and if they’ve been diagnosed themselves, we also provide specialist, youth-specific treatment teams.

By feeling understood and supported, young people develop resilience and can rebuild the foundations that crumbled beneath them when cancer turned their life upside down. That’s how Canteen is the difference.

Join us today to help raise vital funds for young people dealing with cancer.

The route

Collie has a rich history of road cycling. In past decades it has been referred to as the centre of cycling in Western Australia. Now Collie’s huge potential for mountain bike riding is being developed with Collie one of the few WA destinations that has all the amenities visitors could want. Plus, it's located in the middle of the forest – ideal for mountain bike trails.

This year we will explore the trails that Collie and Wellington National Park have to offer (program subject to change).

The OffRoad ride is intended for people with mountain bike riding skills and the strength and endurance to spend hours in the saddle, riding long distances. We will under specific circumstances accept riders under 16. These include that:

  1. Approval to register the rider (aged under 16) must be sought by the parent PRIOR to registration
