Noosa Strade Bianche Vintage Bike Festival and Gran Fondo
The Noosa Strade Bianche pays homage to the ‘golden age’ of cycling.
In the vein of the famed L’EROICA in Italy, Noosa Strade Bianche is strictly for steel framed cycles with downtube shifters (or bar-end shifters). As a celebration of the steel framed cycle, there is no restriction on age of the frame set.
The Vintage Bicycle Show & Shine follows shortly after the Piccolo Fondo….. including a Swap Meet for those wanting to whittle down their collection!
PICCOLO FONDO – 33KM
