Saturday, August 12th 2017. Roll out; 7.00am, Noosa Marina
Saturday morning kicks the weekend off with the 33km Piccolo Fondo – perfect for those wanting an introduction to the ‘strade bianche’, or gravel roads. This shorter event still has a fairly demanding gravel climb and descent, but is easier than the main events on Sunday.
Approx 300m vertical climb.
This event is more suited to beginners. The route will be not marked at relevant intersections, however participants will ride in a single ‘peloton’ and re-group after climbs etc.
There is a ‘no drop’ policy.
Coffee and refreshments will be available for purchase at the top of ‘Tank Hill’, a re-group point.
‘On the Go Expresso’ did a great job keeping up with demand in 2016!
