If you’re visiting Brisbane, make sure you pack your bike as there are are a lot of fantastic Brisbane cycling events on offer!

There are some fantastic Brisbane bike rides that are based within Brissie itself, like the Cycle of Giving, the Tour de Brisbane, the Ipswich 100 Bike Ride, the Moreton Bay 100 Charity Bike Ride, the  MS Brissie to the Bay,  and the Great Brisbane Bike Ride + Coot-tha Challenge.

If you feel like bike riding within a 200km radius of Brisbane, you’ll find rides like the Robbie McEwen Gran Fondo at the Gold Coast, some tough climbs as the Sunshine Coast with the Buderim 9 Challenge, the challenging Brisbane to Sunshine Coast Charity Ride, the Noosa Classic, down the range with the Toomoo, or Ride the Range.

There’s also some multi-day rides that start in Brisbane and either loop back or finish at a different point, like Pedal4Paramedics in the Darling Downs, the Noosa Strade Bianche, and the Tour de Valley at the Gold Coast.

You can also have a look and see if any of the local bike clubs have any group rides on offer. And don’t forget to have a look at all the other attractions that  Brisbane has on offer.

So have a look at our online cycling event calendar, and see if you can find some Brisbane cycling events to suit!
