Ride Details

The Tour de Brisbane is a weekend of cycling for pros and recreational cyclists headlined by the UCI Gran Fondo World Series event.

The Tour de Brisbane is a UCI  qualifying event through the streets of Brisbane.  As the name suggests, this ride is based in Brisbane. Along with the races, you’ll find three non-competitive cycling events. The Tour de Brisbane also raises funds for the Amy Gillett Foundation.

The Tour de Brisbane is one of three UCI qualification events now held in Australia.  The other two are Amy’s Gran Fondo in Lorne, and the Bathurst Cycling Classic which is also known as the B2B.  The 2019 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships are in Poznan in Poland.

As a rider, the choice is to start with the UCI riders over the 110km course or ride one of the three non-competitive events – Amy’s Ride with the choice of either a 110km or 45km ride, and the 8km Community Ride which is for families.

The 45km ride starts and finishes at Southbank which is based in the Brisbane CBD. You’ll be riding along the river and through the city crossing the Story and Go Between Bridges, then heading north towards Kelvin Grove on the M3, turning off and cycling towards Mt Cootha for a sharp climb, before looping back to Kelvin Grove, across the Go-Between Bridge to the end. 

The 110km Ride follows the same route as the 45km ride, but it then heads south down towards 8 mile plains, Rochedale, Burbank and Sheldon before looping back to Southbank.

The Tour de Brisbane is also a celebration of cycling with the National Road Series (NRS) Representatives race over 2 stages.  This is the road race on the same 110km course as well as a criterium on an inner-city Short Circuit race.

Brisbane weather at this time of year is very stable. Being in a semi-tropical zone and mid-autumn, temperatures should range from mid-teens to high 20s. If it does rain it should only be a light shower, as the rainy season will be over.

This is a weekend of activities, with rides to suit those looking for a challenge or the opportunity to stretch your legs! And don’t forget about qualifying for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
