You have ONE CHANCE | ONE RIDE | a ONCE IN A LIFETIME ride of the new SECOND RANGE CROSSING before it officially opens to traffic.

The ROTARY CLUB OF TOOWOOMBA Inc is proud to present RIDE THE SECOND RANGE CROSSING on SATURDAY September 7 2019

This will be South East Queensland’s premiere Charity ride of 2019,  your entry will be  supporting RACQ Lifeflight, Emerge Toowoomba, the Salvation Army and Lifeline in Gatton and the Toowoomba Rotary Club Community Fund.

You’ll also have the option to purchase a ROTARY RIDE THE SECOND RANGE CROSSING Jersey.

We have FOUR FULLY SUPPORTED rides on the new SECOND RANGE CROSSING.

This is your ONE CHANCE to ride and experience not only the new iconic VIADUCT of the new TOOWOOMBA SECOND RANGE CROSSING but almost the entire Lockyer Valley leg of the new bypass.  Be safe knowing your 73km ride is fully supported.  There is also an option to purchase your souvenir ROTARY RIDE THE SECOND RANGE CROSSING Jersey.

Your 73k Ride will start under the ARCHES heading West, then looping back for your first run down the VIADUCT to almost the end of the TOOWOOMBA SECOND RANGE CROSSING.

With a gentle 6-degree incline, we reckon the ride down the range could set a cracking pace and be just as epic for the ride back home.

Once you reach the bottom, you’ll then loop back for the climb up the RANGE, taking in the views as you cross the VIADUCT.  Your ONCE IN A LIFETIME RIDE will finish under the arches.

Who will set the STRAVA KOM and QOM?

Your $95.00 entry for THE 73  will be  supporting RACQ LifeflightEmerge Toowoomba, the Salvation Army and Lifeline in Gatton and the Toowoomba Rotary Club Community Fund.

As we secure more information from Main Roads, we assure you will be the first to know.

Everything SO FAR

Do you have Maps or Course Elevations?

As you’d expect, the course has been an active construction site so we haven’t had access to secure any Strava Maps or pure Course Elevations, but our Full Course Flybys will give you an idea of what to expect.

Rotary Ride The Second Range Crossing is not a race, but on the day you can set a cracking pace and could be crowned a Strava KOM or QOM. A Title you’ll get to hold as this is a Once In A Lifetime Ride Event. It will be epic!

Is THE 73 and THE V31 the only Rides across the Viaduct?

Yes

 

What Time will the RIDE Start on September 7?

All Rides with start at 7am. THE 73 Riders will go first, followed by THE 36 and THE 25’s and finally  THE V31‘s

 

Is The Ride Supported?

Yes. We will have Volunteer Marshalls on the course for each ride. Rotary Ride The Second Range Crossing is a fully supported ride event. We’ve been doing Ride The Range for 10 Years, so we know how it rolls!

You will have a  FIVE hour window to complete our longest ride THE73. Chances are you will be back in time to enjoy the free community fair which starts at 11am.

What type of bike can I Ride?

A road bike is best but if if has two wheels, great brakes and good comfy seat you are looking good. A MTB is great option as well. If you have an E-Bike, not a problem. This is a charity ride with some sweet views. Go for it!
