A cult cycling festival that has gathered over a hundred cyclers using steel frame cycling, the Noosa Strade Bianche Cycling Festival will once again bring together hundreds of riders and vintage show bikes in a two-day exceptional cycling event.
Attracting vintage bicycle enthusiasts and everyone who’s passionate about the old-school cycling and who seeks a unique cycling challenge, this festival promises a nostalgic and exciting experience. On 9 and 10 August, Noosa will be the host of the fourth Strade Bianche Cycling Festival, which features a series of cycling events that are suggestive of the rich history of steel frame cycling.
Three bike rides of different levels of difficulty will take place in the Noosa River and hinterland, and a popular bike show with more than 150 riders and 100 vintage show bikes are expected to take part.
To further evoke the feel of vintage cycling, the Noosa Strade Bianche Cycling Festival limits entries to steel-frame bicycles fitted with down tube gear shifters. The courses involve large sections of gravel white roads, such as challenging climbs and nerve-wracking descents.
The two longer course options (128km and 85km) will allow riders to experience a more challenging test of skills and endurance. These will also provide participants a unique experience as they go along the breathtaking scenery of the hinterland towns. Moreover, they can build friendships and meet more like-minded individuals who share a common passion for cycling’s colourful history.
This Noosa Strade Bianche Cycling Festival will be centred in and around Noosa Marina, 2 Parkyn Court Tewantin which serves as the starting point, and the Show and Shine will happen on the Marina boardwalk.
