WHEN YOU CYCLE WITH FRIENDS, IT’S ABOUT THE JOURNEY NOT THE DESTINATION
The great thing is, if you and your mates join us for Velothon Sunshine Coast, the destination just happens to be awesome! Think world class riding, stunning scenery from the beach to the hinterland, post ride beers watching the Tour De France at the Clubhouse beside the beach, and you’ll get a feeling of what’s on offer at Velothon Sunshine Coast.
With the teams option available, you can satisfy your competitive streak battling it out for the yellow jersey with your team mates, or if you’re not a serious roadie, just enjoy the banter and chatter while you soak up the stunning scenery. O.k., there’s a few hills and the small matter of Obi Obi to conquer, but you’re not one to shy away from a challenge, right? Read more.
A NEW TAKE ON THE TRADITIONAL EUROPEAN RIDES.
We’ve taken what we think are the best elements of a Gran Fondo style race and transplanted this format in to the winterless Sunshine Coast. Fantastic roads and routes, managed roads, King of the Mountain and Sprint stages, all combined with a perfect riding climate and sublime scenery. Off the bike every ride starts and finishes in and around the Maroochydore area, with a dedicated Velo Clubhouse right on the river at Cotton Tree Park, Maroochydore. Open throughout each day and in to the evening for riders, friends and family to relax and share in the experience.

The Sunshine Coast is delighted to welcome all returning and first time Velothon athletes and their families to the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
The July climate is perfect for training and racing. From the moment you arrive and feel the sunshine on your skin; whether it is digging your toes into the golden sand for a post-race walk and swim or breathing the clean hinterland air as you cycle, you’ll begin to feel different. You will feel naturally refreshed, revitalised and relaxed in preparation for the Velothon event.
Around your training and race schedule, fuel up at one of the many restaurants and eateries along the coast providing extensive healthy options for you or indulge in a variety of cuisines; enjoy a coffee or two at one of our many coffee spots; chill at the beach to aid your recovery and create time during your stay to explore the world class coastline.
Stunning views can be found from a beach, on a boardwalk, along an esplanade or from a lookout. With over 100 kilometres of sandy coastline, peaceful everglades, dramatic waterfalls, lush rainforest and colourful underwater worlds, experience the Sunshine Coast.
