With international travel off the table for the foreseeable future, many keen cyclists will miss the opportunity to attend the legendary Tour De France…
That’s why you can’t miss the next best thing!
The rescheduled Tour de Brisbane kicks off on the 11th of July 2021, and we’re all hoping it can go ahead this time! It offers a range of great events to suit everyone.
It’s for a good cause too. Partnered with Splatt Lawyers, the event aims to raise $200,000 for The Common Good in support of heart and lung transplant research at the Prince Charles Hospital.
To help the cause, register to ride, set up your fundraising page and get your friends and family to donate!
There are plenty of rides and races for everyone, no matter your ability.
Additionally, for one day only, roads, tunnels and busways will close across Brisbane to allow cyclists to participate in these incredible rides!
Here’s the breakdown of events…
The Gran Fondo
The Gran Fondo is the ultimate ride through Brisbane.
The course starts at the Brisbane Showgrounds, crosses over the Story Bridge, loops down to Daisy Hill Conservation Park, back across the river to Mount Coot-tha and finishes at the showgrounds.
With the first ride starting at 6am, the track is 110 kilometres total… this isn’t a ride for the fainthearted!
If you are interested in challenging yourself, sign up here… and get training!
The Medio distance is a slightly shorter version of the Gran Fondo at 75 kilometres… which is still a very impressive distance!
This circuit also starts and finishes at the Brisbane Showgrounds, but does a shorter loop of the Daisy Hill Conservation Park and cuts out the Mount Coot-tha section.
To get involved, make sure to sign up and register at the showground in the two days before the event.
The shortest option for the day is the Piccolo distance at 33.2 kilometres but is guaranteed to be a great Sunday ride!
This track starts and ends with the others, but only goes as far down as Mount Gravatt before looping back up and returning to the showgrounds.
For those wanting to get involved, get a group together and sign up to enjoy a ride on fully closed roads!
The National Road Series
For all those lycra-lovers, the two day National Road Series is not one to miss.
At 139 kilometres, this is a fast and technical course, with tough reverse climbs up Mt Coot-tha.
There is the Criterium on Saturday to get you warmed up and the main event on Sunday to take full advantage of the fully closed roads.
