Taking place on Friday August 9th, the Steel Bike Criterium will be the first event of the 2019 Noosa Strade Bianche.
Experience the excitement of racing your steel framed bicycle on a closed, custom design racing circuit. With a 5.00pm start the NBS Steeler’s Criterium will combine the thrill of racing under lights with the cold air exhilaration of winter.
The venue for this event is the Girraween Criterium Cycling Circuit. Featuring a purpose built cycle track, the Girraween complex also has BBQ facilities and a licensed bar. The Girraween Circuit is located near the Noosa Aquatic Centre, Sunrise Beach.
The format of the race is to be announced closer to the event and will depend upon entry numbers (generally 15min plus 2 laps).
The Noosa Strade Bianche is a not for profit event and a worthy cause is supported each year.
