The 2017 Jewel Residences Oceanway Ride sees 2 extraordinary courses and a King and Queen of the Mountain Challenge which have been designed to encapsulate the Gold Coasts world renowned Coastline and beautiful unspoilt Hinterland.
With the success of last year, the Ultimate Oceanway Ride presented by Staminade is on again. A 55km coastal journey from the iconic Surfers Paradise foreshore. Riders make their way south along the coastline (with a short inland detour through Palm Beach only), taking in the beautiful view all the way to Point Danger and return.
In 2017, we have introduced a new ride, the Sea to the Summit Gran Fondo. Now, this one is a bit more challenging! Also starting from the Surfers Paradise foreshore, cyclists get to test their climbing skills as they make their way up to Eagle Heights Resort before returning back to the starting line. It’s 95km of pedaling and with an exciting section to really test your skills on the mountain!
Limited Edition Cycling Jersey
Cyclists love a great looking event jersey which they can wear as a badge of honour and the 2017 Oceanway Ride’s limited edition jersey will not disappoint.
There are only a limited number available so you will need to be quick!
We are proud to announce that we have partnered with JAKAZNI, a well respected and locally owned company that has set a new benchmark in cycling and sporting apparel. If you are into cycling, chances are you know them or already have one of their signature jersey’s.
The Oceanway Ride Jersey by JAKAZNI
Why JAKAZNI ? The team at JAKAZNI specialize in quality, custom made sporting apparel. Being cyclists themselves they truly know what cyclists want and need.
The key feature of the JAKAZNI jersey is they have a full-length quality YKK zip, which are made in Japan. One of the many things cyclists comment on is having a full length zip makes it much easier to get in and out of. Having the option to open it all the way is perfect, especially on a hot day when you need to cool down quickly.
There are many different grades of fabrics available, but for the Oceanway Ride, JAKAZNI are using their signature fabric – it’s breathable and made using a lightweight polyester mesh with Lycra sleeves. They will also feature 3 rear pockets, a silicon waist gripper (to keep your jersey in position and stops from riding up) and are finished with high quality flat lock stitching. All things combined make for a great fitting and durable event jersey.
The team at JAKAZNI think you’ll love this year’s design and they look forward to seeing everyone on what can only be described as one of the best rides on the Gold Coast.
In 2017 we have introduced the option to add your team name to your jersey. It’s a perfect way to add some team spirit to the ride. Get your cycling mates together and come up with a name to represent who you are, or maybe you have a team of work colleagues and want your team to be your business or brand. Your team can be 2 or 10 – more than one is a team! It’s only $20 to add the team name to your jersey and you do so when registering your entry online on our Oceanway Ride website.
King & Queen of the Mountain – And the infamous Polka Dot Jersey
The King and Queen of the Mountain presented by Polka Dot Marketing is a 4.5km section of the Sea to the Summit Gran Fondo course where each cyclist will be timed. While overall both the 55km and 95km rides are not a race, we have this small section where your time could see you crowned King or Queen of the Mountain. There is also $6,000 in prize money up for grabs!
The KOM and QOM will be both awarded with a Polka Dot jersey and will receive $1,500 each. Second place for each category receives $1,000 each and third place will receive $500 each.
VIP Ride with Phil Liggett Jersey
This jersey is a bit special in that you get to wear it while you are riding with the legendary Voice of Cycling, Phil Liggett and other local sporting heroes. There will only be 30 of these Jersey’s made.
This Jersey has Phil’s signature embedded into the design, however last year Phil personally signed each one and we no doubt there are many now taking pride of place on the wall at home or office.
What does JAKAZNI love about the Oceanway Ride?
“Just the name alone is enough to conjure thoughts of a fantastic day out on the bike, and when you know how beautiful the Gold Coast to Tweed coastline is, you know you just have to ride this event.
The ride to Point Danger is a nice ride for anyone to do and will be an achievement for many casual riders and tourists to take in the sheer beauty of the coastline.
The Mt Tamborine ride will certainly be a challenge for a lot of riders but the rewards will be breathtaking with views to the coast.
To have the ‘Voice of Cycling’ Mr Phil Liggett on board endorsing this event speaks volumes for the character of the ride. Why would you want to ride anywhere else!
Team JAKAZNI will be riding, so we look forward to seeing you all out on the road and sharing stories after the event.” – Team JAKAZNI
