Elite cyclists from across Australia are gathering in the Tweed to start their Tour de Tweed preparations for the Battle on the Border Cycling Festival.
The Tour for 2014 includes the traditional two road races, an individual time trial, and the Stan Brims criterium and will operate from the Murwillumbah Showgrounds and Salt resort.
The racing takes riders from Australia, New Zealand and Asia through the picturesque Burringbar, Bilambil, Tyalgum hinterlands, coastal ranges of Terranora and Farrants Hill, testing the cyclists with tough country roads.
The Tour de Tweed nine divisions include NRS Men & Women, Elite Men A-C, Masters A-C, Women’s B-D and U17 Women & Men. Six hundred (600) semi-professional and competitive riders are expected to transcend on the Tweed Valley over the four day festivities.
