Cycling Through Paradise: The Noosa Classic Experience
The Noosa Classic brings together cyclists from across Australia to cruise through the region’s picturesque beaches and expansive hinterland.
Choose Your Challenge: Three Courses for Every Level of Rider
The annual event is held in August and showcases some of Queensland’s astonishing and diverse scenery. With three different courses to choose from, cyclists will tour across the Noosa region. The Maxi Classic; which is the most difficult of the three, takes competitors on a 160-kilometre ride. The Challenge Classic is 120 kilometres, while the Social Classic at 45 kilometres; being an excellent introduction to the Noosa Classic series. Each year, several cycling enthusiasts opt to do all three courses. The event encourages riders to choose their own charity to support, instead of being focused on a single cause.
Event Essentials: What to Expect on the Day
Age restrictions apply depending on the distance. Participants must be at least 10 years old to enter the Social Classic.
