No I did both (not on the same day).

I thought there might have been a clash between the Gran Fondo and one of the triathlons.

Thanks dobby.

Added your events and a bunch of Triathlons into the first post. But soon i wont be able to edit it anymore.

Keep posting them individually i think and ill get a Mod to update the first post. Hopefully means that anyone checking this out in 5 pages time will just look at the orginal post.

Don't forget the Tour de Tamborine, a very pleasant event which will probably occur on the weekend after the Rainbow ride in November 2012. :D

There are already two fairly comprehensive events calendars for SEQ.

They are Road Grime for road events and sister site MTB Dirt for MTB and adventure races.

I put together a google doc with a timeline of all the events in the OP so far. You can add new events using the form here.

I've made editing of the underlying spreadsheet open to all collaborators (anyone with a gmail account) so if you need to modify dates feel free to make the changes yourself.

I can't find any news on the course for the coot-tha challenge. They've mentioned 85kms and have also hinted at the gateway. Anyone got any info?
