Ride Details

The Ipswich 100 Bike Ride is a well known day of cycling with spectacular scenery as you pass through the scenic rim along different routes.

The Ipswich 100 Bike Ride is a well-known event in south-east Queensland, that has been running for over 20 years now. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist who is looking for a challenging ride or you’re new to cycling, you’ll find a ride to suit. You can even bring the family along for a ride and enjoy the post-ride events. 

The ride starts in the City of Ipswich which is at the western end of Brisbane, about 40 km or 40 minutes by car from the Brisbane CBD.

The Ipswich 100 Bike Ride is made up of  six rides: the Imperial 100 Challenge, the Classic 100,  the Fun Filled 50, the Esprit 25 and the Kids Caper. There is also a team event. Whatever your fitness level or your area of interest, there is a ride to see your ability.

The 25 km ride targets families and those new to cycling longer distances with a mostly flat route with a few easy hills.  You’ll leave Ipswich, heading west out to Walloon, around the north side of the RAAF Amberley base before heading back.

The 50km ride targets the casual cyclist who can manage 15 to 20km an hour with a mostly flat route with a few hills. This ride is a quick loop going out to Rosewood and then turning back heading towards the Amberley RAAF air base before turning back onto the outbound route back to Ipswich.

The Classic 100 targets those who ride about 20o km per week and who enjoy the challenge of long distances. You’ll find some good climbs and some longer fast sections on this ride. You’ll follow the 50 km Ride out to Rosewood before turning South towards Mount Walker which is a 5% climb over 2km. Then turning east towards Harrisville, Milora and then heading back towards Ipswich. 

The Imperial 100 Challenge targets fit cyclists who are looking for a challenging ride to train for. This ride has undulations with two Cat 4 and one Cat 5 climbs to get over, for an elevation gain of 72 m. This ride follows the same route as the  Classic 100 to Milora, then turning South for a loop down to Charlwood and Mount Alford before returning back to Milora and joining the Classic 100 riders back towards Ipswich. 

The Ipswich 100 Bike Ride raises funds for the Ipswich Hospital Foundation

This is a great day out that will provide a challenge for everyone.
