Tour de Brisbane

Postby RobertL » Wed Aug 22, 2018 9:34 am

The press is reporting on a UCI pro event to be held in Brisbane next year: https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/nation ... 4zyuh.html

It will be part of Bike Week, and include a mass participation ride.

Details are a bit scarce at the moment.

Part of the "Gran Fondo World Series"
Not to be confused with real "Pro" racing, or real racing of any kind.

Well that's much easier than encouraging cycling by building infrastructure.. which these days pretty well can't be done without taking road space away from cars. Aint nobody got time for that!
