Seven hundred on their bikes for adventure


A 700-strong contingent of cyclists including a travelling tent city and 50 support vehicles, will ride through the area on the weekend in the Cycle Queensland Adventure Tour 2017

The 16th annual tour kicks off in Goondiwindi on Saturday, September 2, before passing through northern New South Wales from September 6 – 10.

The tour will pass through Woodenbong, Kyogle and Murwillumbah before finishing at Currumbin on the Gold Coast.

Bicycle Queensland CEO Mr Wilson says Cycle Queensland is about taking cycling to the community.

‘We value making cycling a mainstream activity for people of all shapes and sizes, while still keeping Cycle Queensland a challenge where people step out of their comfort zone with hundreds of others of a similar level,’ says Mr Wilson. ‘We love to show the wider community how normal yet vibrant cycling is and to bring economic impact to Queensland towns.

‘These are all priorities of Cycle Queensland.’

Bicycle Queensland Event Director Joel Stephens says Cycle Queensland is no ordinary bike ride. ‘It’s a fully-catered and fully-supported cycling holiday’, says Stephens. ‘With around 180 crew and volunteers working around the clock along the journey, riders can concentrate entirely on their cycling and taking in the ever-changing landscapes while we take care of the rest.
