Start at sunrise – take in the views
Looking for a longer ride?
Rolling out just after sunrise from Tewantin, you’ll soon be taking in some of the best views along the east coast. If you like rides by the beach with amazing scenery and great company, all you need to do is bring some mates along!
As you ride south from Tewantin through Noosa and the Eastern Beaches you’ll see why so many people love the Sunshine Coast. Take it all in, enjoy the views and ride to your capabilities, we’ll take care of the rest.
As you roll through Peregian Beach, Coolum Beach and Point Arkwright, be sure to stop and take in the views. Take some time to watch the abundance of surfers chasing eternal glory and let the fresh sea air enrich your lungs in preparation for a hill or two later on.
Once past the half way mark and joined up with the 45km riders, you’ll get some sustenance for the second half and ride away from the ocean into the scenic hills of Kiels Mountain and Forest Glen. But don’t worry, the hills may be sharp, but don’t last long, so this is still a ride for everyone.
As you approach the finish stretch you’ll smell the coffee and hear the entertainment of what promises to be a fun filled celebration of cycling on the coast. Stick around and help us celebrate.
Not sure how you’ll get back to your car? No need to worry! We’ll have regular bus and truck transfers heading back to Tewantin after the ride so you can relax and let us take care of the logistics, or if you’re feeling energetic, you can cruise back up the coastal path, stopping for lunch along the way. An overview of the mornings proceedings can be found below.
