Noosa Classic Team Top Tips

Whether you’ve already signed up or are in need of that last bit of persuasion, some of the team here at the Noosa Classic wanted to share with you their top tips getting ready for, taking part in and enjoying the Noosa Classic. Here are their sage words of wisdom…

“Make sure you enjoy the gourmet cuisine along Hasting Street in Noosa, or visit the Eumundi Markets on a Saturday. It’s called Australia’s premier artisan market, and it’s got some of the best food, jewelry and arts & crafts around.”

Jasmine Gale – Coordinating Queen

“Hanging out at the Surf Club or Noosa Main Beach; Cruising Hastings St people watching; Stand Up Paddleboarding on Noosa River; visiting one of the local breweries or just tucking into some local produce at one of the hundereds of cafes and restaurants.”

Matt Gunn – Noosa Native

“If you’re not sure whether to sign up, or if you don’t know which course to ride, I’d recommend just jumping on in there and giving it a crack! The Gran Fondo style event is established and run with the intention of involving not only your typical experienced rider but also to encourage families, friends and newcomers to participate in this rapidly growing festival of cycling.”

Kea Pleasance – Marketing Maestro 

“There is so much to explore in and around Noosa – the beaches, restaurants, shops and watching the sunset over the river. My favorite, though, is the walk around the National Park headland to Hell’s Gates – such a beautiful, peaceful part of the world. I honestly never get tired of visiting the Noosa region.”

Vanessa Burges – Event Director Extraordinaire 

“For me, the best part about any Gran Fondo ride is the camaraderie you experience with your fellow riders. Weekend group rides are so much fun, but times that feeling by 1,000 and that’s what you get when you ride the Noosa Classic. Also, after burning all those calories, make sure you find time to fit in a burger or two at Betty’s Burgers & Concrete Co on Hastings Street. Remember, all riding and no relish makes Jack a dull boy…”
