Great Brisbane Bike Ride – 2020 Ride Cancelled 
As hinted in our December eNews, we can now confirm the Great Brisbane Bike Ride will be on hiatus in 2020.  While we are as determined as ever to continue producing quality, safe and enjoyable events for BQ members and the wider cycling community to enjoy, we’ve had to pay attention to the market and the demand for mass participation rides. We are working on ways to cap the ever increasing costs of running events and look forward to bringing you some amazing events later in the year. We know GBBR missing from the calendar will be as disappointing for you, as for us here at BQ, however we look forward to sharing our amazing future events soon.
