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 two distances - 110km and 45km - and are non-competitive and available to anyone and everyone from 12 and up.
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?
110km Ride - 16 years old as of 31 December 2019
45km Ride - 12 years old as of 31 December 2019
Queensland and Brisbane stand tall and proud to provide an international calibre cycle course.
For six months, state and local stakeholders embarked 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.
