Ride Details

The Ride of Duty is a memorial ride through the Gold Coast hinterland.

The Ride of Duty is a memorial ride through the Gold Coast hinterland to raise awareness of the importance of army cyclist corps during past wars. This cycling event is based in the Gold Coast at Burleigh Heads

There are two recreational rides on offer over two distances: the 50 Km  Ride to Remember and the 100 km Ride of Duty.

The 100 km Ride of Duty, starts at Burleigh Heads and then goes through the main streets of the Gold Coast before heading into the valleys to gain some elevation on the Tallebudgera Valley and then along the New South Wales/Queensland border of the  Currumbin Valley. Then making your way back along  Palm Beach, back to Burleigh Heads before finishing at the Burleigh Heads RSL.

The 50 Km  Ride to Remember, also starts at Burleigh Heads and then goes through the main streets of the Gold Coast before heading into the Tallebudgera and Currumbin valleys for a shorter ride. You’ll then head back down to Kirra and back through Palm Beach before arriving at Burleigh Heads RSL Club.

The Ride of Duty aims to raise awareness of the great efforts made by the army cyclist corps who were an integral part of the armed forces.  Funds raised from this ride are used for the welfare and benefit of war veterans.

Burleigh Heads is a suburb of the Gold Coast region along the coastline and is 90 km south-east.  This is about a 1 hour drive on the M1. If you decide that public transport is an option, take a combination of train and bus to get to Burleigh Heads via the train to Southport and then change to a bus to get to Burleigh Heads.  There is an airport in the Gold Coast which is named Coolangatta. This is a 15-minute drive to Burleigh Heads and is also serviced by the bus system.

The weather in the  Gold Coast region is subtropical to temperate.  Which means the temperature ranges from the high teens to high twenties with a 50/50 chance of rain. This would be a light drizzle or short showers.  I’d suggest you take a gilet or a light jacket in your luggage or in your back pocket. 

You’ll find other great cycling events, like the Ride of Duty, in our online Cycling Event Calendar.

Enjoy!
