Australia's most famous fun ride event, a 100km ride from Brisbane, Queensland to the Gold Coast. With over 4,000 riders participating, the event is loved by Aussies and long ride fans alike. The bus lane, which runs about 16 km just outside of Brisbane South bank, the starting point of the event, is very popular because it is the only day of the year when the highway, which is usually only used by buses, can be used as a dedicated bicycle lane. The pastures as far as the eye can see and the coastal cycling routes are easy to ride with few ups and downs. Surrounded by cheerful and friendly Aussie cyclists, you will naturally smile.
