Want to compete in the Tour of the Tropics but think that all stages might be too much? Then why not register for the Gran Fondo (also known as our BIG race). Only $30 per rider to register. It really is a race for everyone.

The Gran Fondo is a single stage event, following the same course as the Stage racers will follow on Stage 2. Challenge yourself over 3 laps (63 km) and 940m of vertical metres. While challenging yourself, you will be raising much needed funds for our partner Committee for Oncology Unit at Cairns Hospital (COUCH) – Cancer Wellness Charity COUCH.

You will also be in the running to win some amazing prizes, including a brand new race bike courtesy of Pump ‘n’ Pedals, valued at $2,500.

The Gran Fondo is for the whole family (anyone aged 17 and over can enter).

You can choose to ride 1 lap, 2 laps, or even all 3 laps, dependent on your skill level.  Completely up to you.  There’ll be prizes at every step of the way.

So dust off your bike and get cycling for a great cause!
