Join us for the first-ever Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Festival of Cycling this June!

On Saturday 5th June, Bicycle Queensland and Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Users Association Inc (BVRTUA) are teaming up to host the first Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Festival of Cycling.

It will be the biggest event of its kind held on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, catering for gravel riders and holiday goers with options to purchase transport to and from the event available.

Riders will be fully supported with ride marshals, mechanics, first aid, support vehicles and rest stops with food throughout the whole event. Participants will also have access to event photos taken by professional photographers, free of charge.

Riders can choose from three different distances for all ages, preferences and abilities:

  • 44km from Linville to Yarraman
  • 75km from Toogoolawah to Yarraman
  • 161km from Wulkuraka to Yarraman (end-to-end).

All distances end in Yarraman, where the Yarraman Business Group is hosting a Finish Line Festival with music, food, markets and activities for the whole family from 10am to 4pm. 

CEO of Bicycle Queensland, Rebecca Randazzo, is excited to offer a gravel bike event in partnership with BVRTUA.

‘Adventuring through one of Queensland’s most historic landmarks is a great way to holiday at home this year, especially as the event offers transport options, food, bike support and entertainment for the whole family. We’re proud to be working together with a regional organisation to bring a gravel ride event to this iconic Queensland cycling destination.”
