Ciclismo 2015 – Ride the Regions (RTR) Challenge Series
2015 marks the introduction of a new CICLISMO concept, where new cycling events have been introduced to run alongside the traditional Brisbane Camperland QRTS. These include a ‘Ride the Regions’ (RTR) Challenge Series, Community Rides, a Women’s Tour and a Cyclocross event.
The ‘Ride the Regions’ (RTR) Challenge Series is a new initiative of Cycling Queensland aimed at providing a unique opportunity for cyclists to challenge themselves on exciting, scenic courses in South East QLD. The three timed Challenge rides in the series coincide with the final three rounds of the Brisbane Camperland QTRS.
Riders are able to take part in the events as individuals or as members of a team. All riders will be timed and be eligible for a selection of random prizes at the finish. A commemorative shirt will be available to recognise their accomplishment.
Registration and further information will soon be available on the new Ciclismo website. Please check the Ciclismo Facebook page for updates.

RTR Challenge Series – ‘The Great Bunya Challenge’
Sunday 21 June 2015
The first of the RTR Challenge Series ‘The Great Bunya Challenge’ provides riders with the unique experience of climbing the testing Bunya Mountains Road from the Kumbia side to finish at the top of the Bunya Mountains National Park. Riders will depart Kingaroy prior to the QRTS race and have the option of following the same route to the Bunya Mountains (‘Grande’ event – 108km), or, for riders looking for a shorter option, there will be the choice of proceeding from Kingaroy straight to the top of Bunya Mountain via Kumbia (71km).
Grande – Kingaroy to Bunya Mountains (108km)
Medio – Kingaroy to Bunya Mountains via Kumbia (71km)

The ‘Battle the Blackall’ is the second round of the RTR Challenge series. This 107km ride will depart Gympie prior to the QRTS race on Sunday 26 July and follow the same route to Maleny. A bus will be available to take ‘Battle the Blackall’ riders from Maleny to Gympie on Saturday afternoon, for those riders that wish to leave their vehicle in Maleny.
Grande – 107km (Gympie to Maleny)
RTR Challenge Series – ‘Ride of the Future’
Sunday 30 August 2015
The ‘Ride of the Future’ is the final ride in the RTR Challenge series. It departs Yarrabilba prior to the Brisbane Camperland QRTS Stage 2 road race and follows a circuit that takes riders towards Jimboomba, Mundoolum and Tamborine before joining the same circuit used for the QRTS road race to complete the ride. Participants in the longer ‘Grande’ event (83km) will complete an additional lap of the QRTS road race circuit. The shorter ‘Medio’ option is 52km.
Grande – 83km
Medio – 52km
Ivan Liked this!
So who’s been a quiet achiever recently then, hmmmmmm? Rob’s going to kill this, The Bike Lane was a great concept when Wade Wallace, Scott McGrory, and Matt Keenan were doing it in 2012-2013 but it was very much a prototype show made on the smell of an oily rag. I know Scott in particular poured his heart and soul into the original program. But it’s picked up now for SBS and I like Rob’s forthright commentary. He’s very much from the James Hunt school of commentary without the English Grammar School accent.
Hopefully SBS won’t neuter the original concept too much in the interests of political correctness. By the way, Rob still holds the outright record for the Hot Lap on a reasonably priced race bike.
Registrations now open
Fantastic Winter event opportunity…great build up event to the GC100 and Robbies festival of Cycling…plus it is a “Ride Rotary” event! A sister event to the GC100 and a bloody good neighbour…Rotary put a in huge effort to host these events and their reward is your participation..come on every one and that means all you clubbies..this is the grass roots of cycling…give me a hand to build these events into something we can all be very proud of..
Some light stuff

Sticking with the

Just putting out a proposal which we can throw in the waste bin if it doesn’t gain traction.
Some of you might recall Turbo Thursday around Hope Island. When it worked well, there were big numbers participating. Riders from Robina, riers from H2O, riders from the Sharks as well the Bayview Training Group. It seems to me a strong Tuesday and a strong Thursday on the weekly training calendar would be a good thing.
For A group and B Group to have a competitive spirit, the magic recipe seems to be 100% and 85% distance respectively for A and B groups.
If you know the Hope Island region, in the map below, you’ll see a route which has 8 sets of lights for the whole distance if you were to ride the A Group route. I’m thinking we could move our current Wednesday ride to Thursday, kick off the original Spotlight meet and greet system to then hook up with the riders waiting at Caffene Break. Neutral zone until the riders split at the Runaway Bay shops? Your thoughts?
More light stuff

This Saturday 16th May the first race of the MCC Women’s Series. We are looking for women to ride C/D who are new to or thinking of starting road racing. This grade is a great introductory level and with discounted three day licences its a great event for women to try racing for the first time. The course is an undulating 41km with a flat finish. Women’s A/B is for strong women riders and experienced road racers looking to compete at club level against other women. The A/B course is a challenging 58km with a hilltop finish. Although this is a series each race will be run individually with prizes you don’t need to race all three events. For more info Email Simone firstname.lastname@example.org
Please help us support women’s racing and share will all women riders you know.
