June 19 - June 21
Welcome to the ultimate winter cycling escape to the sun, bringing together a stunning riding location, dream race set-up and a world class rider experience on and off the bike. Where one day of riding is never enough and you can immerse yourself in everything you love about cycling during the biggest cycling event on the planet.
We’ve taken what we think are the best elements of a Gran Fondo style race and transplanted this format in to the winterless Sunshine Coast. Fantastic roads and routes, managed roads, King of the Mountain and Sprint stages, all combined with a perfect riding climate and sublime scenery. Off the bike every ride starts and finishes in and around the Maroochydore area, with a dedicated Velo Clubhouse right on the river at Cotton Tree Park, Maroochydore. Open throughout each day and in to the evening for riders, friends and family to relax and share in the experience.
Who better to take you through the new course and innovations than Tour De France commentator and World Bicycle Relief ambassador Matt Keenan! Together with World Bicycle Relief, Velothon Sunshine Coast is aiming to raise $30,000 for the Power of Bicycles, which will bring 150 buffalo bicycles to children in need in Africa.
