The 2013 The Pines Tour de Valley features an exciting new team based cycling challenge in addition to the individual time trial event. Following the course proposed for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, riders will experience the beauty of the Currumbin Valley, following Currumbin Creek on a flat to undulating return journey through the lush, scenic countryside.
The SCODY TEAM CYCLING CHALLENGE offers riders of all abilities the opportunity to race in a fun, safe, competitive event with a team of friends, colleagues or fellow club members. Riders can choose to participate in teams of 4 to 6 riders over a distance of 36km or 72km. Riders are encouraged to stay with their team mates and work together to the finish line.
The ZANDER SPORTS SOLO TIME TRIAL EVENT caters for any cyclist wishing to test themselves over the 36km course with the opportunity of being crowned the ‘Queen’ or ‘King’ of the Valley.
Passing the hidden attractions scattered throughout the Valley, riders will enjoy the idyllic nature of an area that has retained its own unique identity within close proximity to the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast.
