Atherton to Cairns
Are you up to it ???? The big challenge - The Final Ride of the Far North Queensland Gran Turismo 2017. It is a 600km course from Atherton to Cairns, with a few little meanders in between.
Start with a quick visit to Herberton (possibly up a range) and along the Crater Loop - a much loved local favourite. Descend through the rainforests back towards Atherton, and enjoy a loop around the Central Tablelands, before heading west to the outback railway town of Dimbulah. Ride back through Mareeba, and start heading downhill to your overnight stop in Mt Molloy.
After a snooze in the classic country pub of Mt Molloy, head across to the Rex Range for a quick descent to the coast and north to the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest. Head back to Cairns along the Cook Highway, with spectacular views across the waters of the Far North. Arrive to a warm reception and a hot meal in Cairns.
Ride fee includes gear transport, breakfasts, meal and overnight accommodation in Mt Molloy, meal in Cairns on arrival, snacks at controls and support enroute.
Day riders need to organise their own transport to and from the start and finish points, and their own accommodation in Atherton and Cairns. (There may be some transport available from Cairns to Atherton on Thursday 7 September 2017 - check with RO).
Attendance at the post-series function on Sunday 10 September 2017 is available as an optional extra.
