9 days, 570km, 1500 people ...pedalling out way

The 2011 Cycle Queensland event organisers have descended on the Granite Belt today, finalising activities for the arrival of more than 1500 cyclists on the 12-13 September.

The annual Cycle Queensland is a must do event on any cycle enthusiast’s calendar. This year, participants are encouraged to ‘saddle up for the Border Explorer and pedal away from the everyday’, travelling from Goondiwindi to Brisbane.

After riding from Goondiwindi via Texas, participants will spend their rest day in Stanthorpe, enjoying award winning wines, grazing Granite Belt produce and for those that just can’t get enough physical activity, bush walking in Girraween National Park.

We look forward to them 'dropping a gear' in our beautiful piece of Queensland. Want to know more www.bq.org.au
