Access all the information you should need to plan ahead for Cycle Queensland.

You can download The Cycle Queensland Handbook to help get your training and preparations started. The Handbook details what to pack, how to pack your bike, what happens at the start site, finish site and on campsite each day and lots more information so you can understand how the event works. It’s a must-read for riders and volunteers alike.

Closer to the start date we will send you a ride ticket and the “Ride Guide” with details of the route and all the activities on offer.

For specific information about different aspects of Cycle Queensland, please see the downloads section.
