** Due to current Covid restrictions, the 2020 Pies to Pacific Ride has been joined with the Ride the Range event in the 100 Mile category. With over 1825 metres of climbing, and over 164km’s; The 100 Mile is set to challenge you. First you weave down the range, make your way to Upper Tenthill, over to Mulgowie, back into Laidley and then on to Gatton. Just as you think you are done and dusted, you then need to climb home via Blanchview Rd back to Picnic Point.
The Pies to Pacific Ride is a long 1 day ride from Beenleigh (South of Brisbane) to Byron Bay.
This ride raises important funds for the MND and Me Foundation, which supports people and their families living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Queensland.
You’ll have the choice of 2 rides. The longer 170km ride and the shorter 155km ride.
The 170km ride leaves from Yatala Pie Shop to Byron Bay, via Tomewim Road and Murwillumbah. This is the “inland” route with some solid and steep undulations to test the climber in you.
The 155km ride leaves from Yatala Pie Shop to Byron Bay via Tweed Heads and Kingscliff. This is the”coastal” route along the coast with not as many undulations as the longer ride.
The Pies and Pacific Ride is capped at 150 riders so you might need to register early to get a spot.
This looks a great day for testing your endurance, with a nice cold beer awaiting you at the end!
