The Cycle of Giving is a charity event along the Brisbane coastline for riders of all abilities to raise money for organ transplant research. It hopes to raise over $250,000 to fund life-saving and life-changing research supported by The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation.
The Cycle of Giving, starts and finishes at James Drysdale Recreation Reserve in Bunya, about 18km north of the Brisbane CBD. You’ll find four rides over three routes to suit cyclists of all abilities: 10km, 20km, 60km and 100km.
The 10 and 20 km route should cater to all different levels of rider, as well as children and families with an out and back route. The 60km and 100km route is for those wanting to go the extra mile. For it, you will head out past the descent and the undulations along Albany Creek past Warner heading near to Petrie. This is where the 60km riders turn east and head towards the beach at Shorncliffe Pier. Meanwhile, the 100km riders will continue north along the inland turning up to Burpengary and then turning east toward the coast through Deception Bay, Scarborough and Redcliffe. Then heading south along the coast to Shorncliffe Pier. The 100km and 60km riders will then join forces and turn at Shorncliffe Pier to head back inland towards Bunya. Over the 100km distance, the elevation is very gentle with about 650 m of elevation with a final climb up to the finish at Bunya. You’ll find a flatter course than most other events and the whole day is family-friendly.
Bunya is about 20 km northwest of the Brisbane CBD and about 25 km from the Brisbane Airport. It is easily accessible by train and bus, as well as by car (with limited parking available at the event). Which is about a 30 min trip.
