Tour De Brisbane – Helpful hints, things to do and an online exclusive offer
Tour De Brisbane is a bike-only ride that allows participants to see all of Brisbane’s most iconic landmarks right from the seat of their bike.
It’s the only bike ride in Australia that extends across fully closed inner city roads, giving riders exclusive access to South Bank, the Story Bridge, Legacy Tunnel, Mt Coot-tha, Western Freeway, South East Busway, the Go Between Bridge and many more central Brisbane streets.
Locals ride alongside visitors from all over Australia to experience the event that blends a passion for cycling with a spectacular showcase of Brisbane’s finest locations.
One of the best parts about Tour De Brisbane is that you don’t have to be a skilled cyclist to participate. The event also offers a Trek FREE Community Ride. So grab your bikes, your friends, your family and get involved in what’s sure to be a fantastic weekend.
