Bicycle Queensland says entries are now open for its 2013 Cycle Queensland social tour; a magnificent 542km scenic route from Mission Beach to the beautiful Port Douglas in far north Queensland. The popular event – which is part adventure, part holiday – will be held over eight days in September, with riders passing through the towns of Innisfail, Millaa Millaa, Yungaburra, Mareeba and Mossman.

“Cyclists on everything from road bikes and tricycles to tandems and mountain bikes will be among the 1000-plus people expected to take part in ride,” says Graeme Ferguson, Bicycle Queensland's event manager.

“It is not a race and we encourage riders to travel at their own pace. Along the route we have water and morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea stops."

He says a 180-member support crew will be along to prepare all meals, transport luggage and help riders navigate their way from town to town.

The event will run from September 8-15, 2013. Registrations are now open, closing on August 2, 2013. Entries received by May 31 will receive a free event jersey.

Interested riders can attend an information evening to be held at Cairns Library on Wednesday, April 17 at 7pm. Please visit the Cycle Queensland website for more information or to RSVP.

“The ride is designed to let people pedal away from the everyday and we encourage riders to take it at their own pace and enjoy the scenery,” says Ferguson.

Last year's event, billed Citrus to the Sea, ran 570km from Gayndah to Noosa past Hervey Bay.
