NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE

A ‘GRAVEL’ FONDO in the vein of the famed L’EROICA in Italy

for

VINTAGE STEEL FRAMED CYCLES.

8 & 9 AUGUST 2015.

 

NOOSA MARINA

2 Parkyn Court, Tewantin

 

Set in the beautiful Noosa hinterland, NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE – GRAND FONDO is a 133 km loop encompassing picturesque country roads, stunning vistas and characterful country towns.

In keeping with the original L’Eroica, there are several challenging climbs & descents, and of course several sectors of ‘strade bianche’; the ‘white’ or unsealed gravel roads.

En-route, there are an assortment of cafes & bakeries, even a country pub or two, for those so inclined. 

Introduced for 2013 was a shorter route: the 89km NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE – MEDIO FONDO.

Negotiations are underway to secure THE LEMON LADIES’ hit pop-up shop, in the wilds of Federal, again for 2015.

 The 33km PICCOLO FONDO returned in 2014, on Saturday morning before the Bicycle Show and Swap Meet at Noosa Marina.

All events feature the local version of ‘strade bianche’ and require a good level of bike fitness.

 These are self-supported rides, so carry your own spare parts/ tubes etc.

There are plenty of opportunities along the way for toilet stops, re-filling bidons, coffee stops, even devonshire teas & counter lunches.

This year, proceeds from Noosa Strade Bianche will support SUNSHINE BUTTERFLIES;

“A logical disability support service and charity supporting babies, kids,

tweens, teens & adults with a disability & their families.”
