That Dam Ride is a charity bike ride through the apple trees of Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt
This weeklong festival, from the 28th of February until the 8th of March, is a great opportunity to combine a decent ride with 10 days of family fun, from street parades to foodies markets, buskers and live entertainment. And with over 60 000 people attending this festival, make sure you book your accommodation early, in case you miss out.
That Dam Ride is a charity ride that is raising money for local charities.
You’ll find rides for cyclists of all levels with a 20km family ride, a 70km part-gravel ride, a 75km road ride and the main 125km ride.
All 4 rides start and finish at Storm King Dam, about 10km out of Stanthorpe, giving you the chance to ride through the stunning scenery of the Granite Belt.
With the main 125km ride, you’ll start with climbing Mount Tully with a great 10km descent towards Balladean, followed with a series of undulations all the way back to the start. You’ll cross the New England Highway twice. That’s with 1600m of climbing, which will make sure you earn your apple that you’ll get at the end.
That Dam Ride looks like a great excuse to combine cycling with a weekend away with the family!
