Early Bird On Now
The Amy's Rides are the Tour de Brisbane's main events - we're ready to invite the world for a bike ride in our backyard. Featuring fully closed roads and an iconic city-based course, this is a world class experience on two wheels. Ride where you've never ridden before - through the city, across the river, and over a few pesky hills.
The Amy's Rides are offered over three distances - 110km, 45km, and 8km - and are non-competitive and available to anyone and everyone from 6 and up with all kids in tag alongs and bike seats welcomed.
What's the difference between an Amy's Ride and a UCI Gran Fondo World Series Age Category?
While both are offered at 110km distances, the Amy's Rides is non-competitive recreation ride. In contrast, the Age Category is competitive and starts are sorted by age group. The top 25% calculation for UCI qualification is calculated based on all full 110km participants.
How old do I have to be to join up?
Gran Fondo (110km) - 16 years old as of 31 December 2019
Piccolo (45km) - 12 years old as of 31 December 2019
Family Fondo (8km) - 6 years old as of 31 December 2019. (kids younger than 6 years old in tag alongs and bike seats accepted
Queensland and Brisbane stand tall and proud to provide an international calibre cycle course.
For the last five months, state and local stakeholders have been on a journey together to create a course that embraces our lifestyle, shows off our unique environment, and reflects our city's vision to be the world's most livable city.
The ride order, full detail and course mokka will be released after receipt of final approvals.
- Start/finish at South Bank
- Multiple river crossings including Story Bridge
- Mt Coot-tha climb and descent... only if you want to - your choice!

A Safe, Fun Ride Together
Our purpose is to raise funds for the Ride for a Metre Matters campaign to promote safe cycling in the city through our partnership with the Amy Gillett Foundation.
