September Cycling Events in Australia

cyclists at a september cycling event

So what cycling events do you have planned for September?

Most of these are in NSW and QLD. with the odd ride in SA, WA, the ACT and Victoria.

In New South Wales, there’s a mix of single and multi-day events, based in Sydney and regional NSW. One, in particular, I would love to attend, the aptly named Gears and Beers ride.

There’s a couple of big charity rides in Queensland, The Brisbane to Sunshine Coast Charity Ride and The Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge. The Robbie McEwen Gran Fondo is on at the end of the month, riding around Mt Tamborine. One ride in QLD that is a little different, is the  Outback Century Cycle Challenge in Winton. This ride has a reputation as being the toughest flattest ride in the outback, and is only held every 2 years alongside the Winton Outback festival.

In Victoria, the big ride is the Amy’s Gran Fondo, which is a UCI qualifier. I participated in this in 2018, and it was a great (yet challenging) event. It is one of the few opportunities to ride the Great Ocean Road without cars.

In Western Australia, the Element Road Series continues in Lancelin.

South Australia has BikeSA’s epic 9 day Annual Tour, this year being held through the Eyre Peninsula. This is an opportunity to ride roads less travelled and to experience parts of SA that you might never see by bike.

In the ACT, the Zoo2Zoo ride starts in Canberra and finishes in Mogo. For those wanting to travel on gravel or mountain bike, this is your chance.
