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
Piccolo Fondo Saturday, August 11th, 2018. Saturday morning kicks the weekend off with the 33km Piccolo Fondo – perfect for those wanting an introduction to the ‘strade bianche’, or gravel roads. This shorter event still has a fairly demanding gravel climb and descent, but is easier than the main events on Sunday.
MEDIO FONDO – 82KM
Medio Fondo Sunday, August 12th, 2018. The Medio Fondo runs in conjunction with the longer rides, and all share the same route as far as just before Cooran but still plenty of strade bianche for the discerning gravel rider.
GRAN FONDO – 135KM
Gran Fondo Sunday, August 12th, 2018. The Gran Fondo course extends further north than the Medio and enjoys more stunning hinterland scenery & the picturesque towns of Cooran, Kin Kin & Pomona.
