Noosa Strade Bianche – 2020 Events
2020 is shaping up to be one of the strangest years to date…
With 2020 shaping up to be one of the strangest years to date, we are crossing our fingers that Covid-19 restrictions in Australia will ease sufficiently over the coming weeks. Our event committee will make a call regarding the event late in May.
If the dice rolls in our favour, August 2020 will see the running of the 10th edition of the Noosa Strade Bianche, providing cyclists with something to look forward to, a celebration of cycling in the beautiful Noosa hinterland.
So what’s happening at the 2020 Noosa Strade Bianche?
Saturday 8th August
Our celebration kicks off with the THE PICCOLO FONDO – 33km at 7.00am. One of the locals favourite mixed terrain rides, a perfect way to start the day.
The Piccolo is followed by the THE VINTAGE BICYCLE SHOW & SHINE at 10,00am. Wonder at the cycling magic from an era past. The Show & Shine provides a platform for steel bike enthusiasts to display their pride and joy.
Join the team from the Noosa Strade Bianche on Saturday evening from 5.30pm to celebrate the completion of Saturday’s events, with a delicious 3 course dinner at Pier 11 Restaurant & Bar, Noosa Marina.
Sunday 9th August
This year Noosa Strade Bianche is opening up a selection of Sunday event routes to gravel bikes, road bikes & mountain bikes. If you have friends that do not enjoy the privilege of owning a vintage gem, they can now at least experience the Noosa Hinterland cycling heaven that is Noosa Strade Bianche.
Our premiere event
The GRAN FONDO – 147.5KM caters for those that like their experience to last… and last…. and last… Endurance is a must if you plan to enter this epic challenge! Starting @ 7.00am.
The DIRTY NOOSA – 147.5KM begins at 8.00am and follows the same route as the Gran Fondo. The Dirty Noosa gives you the opportunity to ride the Gran Fondo on a modern bike (gravel / Mountain Bike / Road Bike).
THE MEDIO FONDO – 87KM & THE DIRTY MEDIO – 87KM offer riders our middle distance event. Starting at 7.30am (Medio) and 7.45am (Dirt Medio), the Medio is long enough to provide post-ride hunger and aching legs, the Medio distance provides the perfect way to explore the sights of the Noosa Hinterland.
THE NUOVO PICCOLO FONDO – 48KM ride begins at 8.30am. Shorter in distance than the Medio and Gran Fondo rides, the Nuovo Piccolo is is still demanding, however, and some bike skills are necessary. This event is for those who find the other ‘heroic’ events too arduous.
Please join us for the ride and get your entries in as soon as possible. If you have friends that ride but don’t own vintage, let them know about the event too. The more shares of the event that we can attract through your social networks, the sooner we can close the event off to further entries and get working on the party!!!
We look forward to seeing you all in 2020… Let’s make it the best… together!
