As part of the Velo Battle on the Border Cycling Festival, the Tweed Valley will host a Coast to Crater Gran Fondo on May 6, 2012. The 57km Piccolo Fondo, the 136km Fondo and 180km Gran Fondo is not a race though participants can set their own goals.
The courses will take the riders past the Tweed Coast beaches, over the Burringbar Mountain Range and through the winding valleys of northern New South Wales. Each course has been designed so riders can enjoy the views offered by the biggest erosion caldera in the southern hemisphere, over thousand meters deep and over forty kilometres in diameter.
As a charity event, all funds raised go to Heart Kids which helps to raise awareness and provide treatments for children affected by Childhood Heart Disease (CHD).
Entry fees range from $49 to $99 (depending on the distance). More information and entry via 07 3124 6099 or www.qsmsports.com
