Noosa Strade Bianche 2019

Noosa Strade Bianche 2019

The Noosa Strade Bianche pays homage to the ‘golden age’ of cycling, open to riders on steel-framed cycles with downtube shifters (or bar-end shifters) only, with several rides through the beautiful Noosa hinterland, a swap meet, and social activities.

The rides are:

  • Steeler’s Criterium (Friday)
  • Nuovo Piccolo Fondo – 48km (Sunday)
  • Medio Fondo – 87km (Sunday)
  • 2019 Mark Dolan Gran Fondo – 144km (Sunday)
  • Piccolo Fondo – 33km (Saturday)
This year's Grand Fondo is a 144km loop through quiet country roads, stunning vistas and country towns, with several imposing climbs and challenging descents. The route includes many sectors of ‘strade bianche’ (‘white’ or unsealed gravel roads). En-route there are cafes, bakeries and country pubs in the Noosa hinterland towns of Cooroy, Cooran and Kin Kin. Several refreshment stops will provide water, bananas and other free delicacies.

A new shorter Nuovo Piccolo route will enable more riders to experience parts of the Sunday courses, as the Medio Fondo and Gran Fondo are quite challenging.

The 33km Piccolo Fondo takes place on the Saturday morning before the Vintage Bicycle Show and Swap Meet at Noosa Marina.

New this year is the Steelers Criterium at the Noosa Crit course, a challenging 915m sealed off-road course - this will be held under lights on the Friday evening.

On Saturday evening, riders are invited to book for the Noosa Strade Bianche dinner.

Register for the rides online.
