Brisbane set to shine for 2019 Great Brisbane Bike Ride
About 2000 people are expected to turn out this Sunday for Bicycle Queensland’s Great Brisbane Bike Ride.
The event has been a feature on Brisbane’s sporting calendar for over two decades, proving popular with riders of all ages and abilities.
Bicycle Queensland CEO Anne Savage said rolling road closures would only be temporary, with minimal impact.
“We’ll have 150 route marshals and 60 special duty police officers out on Sunday to help manage the ride, with early morning road closures in place at a number of locations.
“Health and safety is our number one priority.
“The ride will go from West End across the Gateway Bridge from 6am, with closed lanes for a short time on Kingsford Smith Drive and the Inner-City Bypass, before looping back past Suncorp Stadium for the Mount Coot-tha Challenge.
“Over 1000 fruit buns, 2000 energy bars and bananas, and 3000 litres of water will be ready to go – fuelling a fun and enjoyable community event.
“We’d love to see people showing their support by cheering for any riders out on the route.”
The ride includes four distances, with the 110km heading west to the Moggill Ferry and outer Ipswich, returning via Oxley and the heritage Brisbane river loop.
Riders can register online until midday Thursday 16 May or from 5:30am on the morning of the ride.
