Sunday 26 August 2018
The Noosa Classic, our newest Gran Fondo, will surely be a bike ride to remember, but also a classic Australian experience, and a sensual feast of visual and gourmet delights. So gather your cycling mates, get yourselves ready, and mark Sunday 26 August 2018 down on your calendar.
Just a short drive from Maroochydore, Noosa is a superb location for our second 2018 Gran Fondo. Queensland’s burgeoning cycling culture is well known and respected and the state is a leader in hosting quality cycling events and generally encouraging and supporting cyclists.
Make your choice from three courses: The Maxi Classic, is a challenging 160km ride through some of the most breathtaking scenery you can experience on two wheels. There’s also The Challenge Classic; a 120km option for those with less time on their hands, or distance in their legs. For a more cruisy and casual experience, The Social Classic is a 45km ride through the most stunning areas of the Noosa region that families and kids will love.
Taking part in such a special ride as this is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience and one which we will all value greatly. But recognising that others may not be so fortunate as to be able to take part, we wanted to give riders an opportunity to support a charity they are passionate about. In a departure from most cycling events that are single cause, Noosa Classic riders will have the freedom to choose their own charity to contribute towards via the event.
