NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE

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

for

VINTAGE STEEL FRAMED CYCLES.

9 & 10 AUGUST 2014.

 

NOOSA MARINA

2 Parkyn Court, Tewantin

 

Set in the beautiful Noosa hinterland, NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE – GRAND FONDO is a 128 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 85km NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE – MEDIO FONDO

 2014 sees the return of the MINI FONDO, a 34km loop on Saturday morning before the Bicycle Show at Noosa Marina.

All events feature the local version of ‘strade bianche’ and required 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.
