JDRF is the charity of choice for the Noosa Classic
Following a hugely successful first year- where over 1,200 riders took part in the Sunday ride- the Noosa Classic is back on August 18, 2019! Join the road cycling gran fondo set in one of Australia’s most beautiful beachside locations.
With three course lengths available, there’s sure to be a route to satisfy all tastes, abilities and fitness levels. For the more hardcore (and brave) riders out there, you can take on the 160km Maxi Classic. If you have more modest sights but still want to test yourself, the 120km Challenge Classic could well be for you. And for those wanting a more leisurely roll around the Noosa hinterland, then the 45km Social Classic is sure to keep you (and the lungs and legs!) very happy indeed.
What’s more, the Noosa Classic offers riders the chance to do some good and contribute to the worthy cause of their choice. With the “You Decide, You Choose” fundraising approach, there are no limitations on the charity each participant can raise money for, adding to the $300,000 already raised across the previous six Classic events.
The Noosa Classic will surely be a bike ride to remember, but also a classic Australian experience, and a sensual feast of visual and gourmet delights, and a great opportunity to raise money for a charity close to your heart. So, gather your cycling mates, get yourselves ready, and mark Sunday 18 August 2019 down on your calendar.
As an added incentive, register before Sunday March 24 to receive a free event jersey worth $115!
