Since 1999 on the second Sunday in October BWW has run the Canola Canter. The Canola Canter is conducted under the rules of the Audax Club of Australia. These non-competitive rides involve riding a set distance within a time limit. Distances of 50km, 100km, 150km and 200km are available as road rides with a 50km mixed terrain ride also being offered.

The 50km MT riders enjoy a chat and a beverage of choice with Ron Addison who did the 100km road ride and Margo McFadden who missed the ride because she was running a 'She Rides' session hopefully preparing some ladies for next year's edition of the Canola Canter.
