The Tour de Bay is a great excuse to get out of the house for the weekend from Brisbane and head up to Hervey Bay. Hervey Bay is a popular holiday destination in a beautiful part of Australia, so this ride is a good excuse for a holiday!
This is a true community event that is raising money for the local youth support service conducted by Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre’s Crisis Support Services.
The Tour de Bay caters for everyone, no joke. From a walk, ride or scooter through a scenic ride along the coastline to a centurion loop.
You’ll find the:
- 100km Centurion Ride
- 50km Biking Bruiser
- 25km Scenic Cycle
- 10 km Amazing Family Ride
- 5km Walk, Scoot or Ride
The coastline is the star of the day, making up most of the courses, namely the shorter/ family rides. The 50km and 10kkm rides also take in the back blocks around town to return back to the start at the community centre.
Hervey Bay is located north of Brisbane around 290 km, north of Maryborough on the coastline just to the western side of Fraser Island. Your best option to get there is by car or to take the bus or train through to Maryborough.
The weather in Hervey Bay during September is generally dry, between 15 to about 25 degrees Celsius.
In true country hospitality, the Rotary Club of Hervey Bay Sunrise is hosting a post-ride Community breakfast. A great way to share a coffee and a bit of banter.
