Cycle Queensland 2013 is fairly flat with a few undulating sections and one hill we would rate as hard. Check out the route profile.
Day 1 – nice gentle start to CQ13 with mostly flat terrain.
Day 2 – another flat day to get your legs and bottom into the groove before the climb up to the Tablelands.
Day 3 – we’ve hit the hill! A challenging day with a gentle climb to rest stop 1 followed by a long steep climb to reach the summit. There are several opportunities to rest and recover along the way including the Mamu Rainforest Canopy Walkway, Henrietta Creek (lunch stop), Mungalli Wilderness Retreat (rest stop 2) and the Mungalli Creek Dairy. If it is too much we will have an express SAG bus waiting for you at the rest stops!
Day 4 – undulating terrain through some spectacular FNQ scenery.
Day 5 – R & R
Day 6 – pretty flat day with a nice long downhill into Mareeba. Great long option to Dumbula Dam available for those who are keen for maximum km’s.
Day 7 – pancake flat day with an exhilarating downhill into Mossman. Long option available.
Day 8 – is easy-peasy with your last day highs powering you through. “Home, James.” Choice of a road or beach finish.
