The Great Brisbane Bike Ride has a challenge for everyone. Riders can choose from 10km, 40km, 75km or 110km routes (all starting and finishing on Riverside Drive at West End), with the Mt Coot-tha Challenge optional for 75km & 110km route riders.
Join thousands of fellow riders and follow the Brisbane river as it snakes through our great city. Climb over the Gateway Bridge, cruise through the Inner City Bypass (ICB) and take in another Brisbane landmark, the beautiful Mt Coot-tha, if you choose to.
For those brave riders, the famed Mt Coot-tha Challenge awaits. The timed 2.3km, 9% climb up and over the mountain is an annual personal challenge which many riders add onto their GBBR ride. All 75km and 110km riders receive a timing chip, so you can decide if you'll take up the challenge when you get there!
For the first time ever, GBBR has been granted exclusive use of the Moggill Ferry during the event. So 110km riders will cruise across the river like a VIP without any cars on-board the ferry!
The free event photos and event T-shirt* (for 40km/75km/110km participants) are back this year too along with awesome on-route support.
