Noosa Strade Bianche 2017

Noosa Strade Bianche 2017

Ride through the beautiful Noosa hinterland on the Noosa Strade Bianche, one of Australia's premier vintage cycling events that celebrates vintage and retro steel bicycles and takes in quiet country roads, stunning vistas, charming country towns and a riverside show and shine.

There are four loops: 37km Piccolo, 82km Medio, 137km Gran and 162km Mark Dolan Imperial. Ride in perfect cycling temperatures; enjoy rest stops and a cocktail evening; rub shoulders with Australian Gold Medallist Kathy Watt, Russian World Champion Nikolai Razouvaev and custom steel bike artisan Paul Ketelaar.

In the vein of the L’Eroica cycling event in Italy, Noosa Strade Bianche is for steel-framed cycles only with downtube or bar-end shifters. There are several imposing climbs and challenging descents; sections of ‘strade bianche’ (‘white’ or unsealed gravel roads); and riders pass through the picturesque hinterland towns of Cooroy, Cooran and Kin Kin where there are cafes, bakeries and country pubs.

See the southern hemisphere’s best display of classic steel bicycle machinery at the Vintage Bicycle Show & Shine at Noosa Marina, Tewantin on the Saturday.

Hire bicycles are available.

VISIT NOOSA

Just how close to a humpback whale would you feel comfortable being? Watching the majesty of humpbacks as they travel through the warm waters off Noosa on their annual migration north is an unforgettable sight – their playful tail slaps, breaches, sprays and fin ‘waves’ seem even more incredible when you consider their size … around 15m in length and weighing more than 35 tonnes!

The Global Goddess

Some days you just have to let the world come to you. I was recently back in beautiful Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. I’ve been up there a lot lately, more by default than design, and what’s really cool is that every time I’m there, I discover a host of new things. On this trip, I stumbled across some cool international experiences in which you can indulge. Here are five of my favourites.
