Next Week is Bike Week Sunshine Coast 2017
Bike Week Sunshine Coast 7th to the 15 of October 2017

We Love to Ride!

The Sunshine Coast Council presents the Sunshine Coast Bike Week 2017, an annual nine day celebration of cycling on the Sunshine Coast. This includes the Cyclefest events, free rides and workshops and a Ride2Work day with free breakfast and prizes.

Bike Week encourages people of all ages, sizes and cycling abilities to get into the saddle by offering a packed schedule of events during the week. Most events are free and are provided by community clubs and groups and local business. This series of events aim to encourage participation in cycling and promote road safety messages for all bike riders and motorists to share the road safely.

The Bushrangers are having a Rookie Ride through Parklands on Sunday 8th October at 7:15am at the Radar Hill Road Carpark – https://goo.gl/maps/BbUzvcPHR3G2. More information is on our Calendar at https://bushrangers.org/information/calendar/


Sunshine Coast Bike Week

Sunshine Coast Bike Week

Coming up shortly is the annual Sunshine Coast Bike Week beginning September 24th and finishing October 2nd.

There are a number of different rides and events catering for all ages and abilities. Social pathway rides, children’s courses and commuter cycling training. The Cyclefest will be hosting races including the king of the mountain ride (Palmwoods Montville Rd) and the 100km Grand Fondo.

We have our usual calendar rides advertised as part of the cycle week activities so expect to see a few new faces.

If you register for any of the events/rides then you go in the draw to win some bike shop vouchers.

Also don’t forget that Ride2Work Day is on Wednesday October 12th and I expect our Strava club to be full of commutes that day.

  • Cotton Tree Park, Cotton Tree Esplanade
  • Bill Venardos Park, Omrah Avenue Caloundra
  • Park opposite Sunshine Coast University Hospital along Braggs Street Birtinya (off Kawana Way)
