Welcome to the 2017 Jewel Residences Oceanway Ride.

 

 The 2017 Jewel Residences Oceanway Ride – Set to become Australia’s biggest lifestyle cycling event.

Cycling as a sport and recreation has seen incredible growth over the last decade and as more and more people take up riding and as their ability improves, they start looking for bigger challenges and new cycling experiences.       

This years event sees 3 extraordinary courses which have been designed to encapsulate the Gold Coast’s world renowned Coastline and beautiful unspoilt Hinterland. The courses are as follows:

 

  • The Sea to the Summit Gran Fondo, a 95km journey from Surfers Paradise Beach to the the Gold Coasts breathtaking hinterland, a ride that will challenge cyclists, similar to what you would expect on a European Circuit. On this course we will also conduct a King and Queen of the Mountain Challenge up Oxenford Tamborine Road.  

 

  • The Ultimate Oceanway Ride, a 55km journey from Surfers Paradise to Point Danger, a spectacular Journey along the the Gold Coast’s Coastline.

 

  • The Little Legs Criterium, a 250m closed road circuit on the foreshore of Surfers Paradise for our most precious cyclists. An experience that will ignite cycling in children and create an experience that children, along with their parents will never forget.
