The Moreton Bay 100 is back bringing cyclists, visitors, fundraising and a business boost to our region.

After missing last year, Moreton Bay Cycling Club (MBCC) will hold the 2021 event on Sunday November 14 – with December 12 as a back-up.

It is open for all ages, with the 20km event designed for families and held on cycleways. There were 500 entries in 2019.

Starting point

All rides start at Woody Point, then take routes which include the waterfront at Deception Bay, Redcliffe, Sandgate and longer rides to Bunya, Dayboro, Mt Mee and D’Aguilar.

This year’s Moreton Bay 100 is raising funds for Guide Dogs Queensland. In 2019 it generated $27,000 for Lions and Smiling for Smiddy.

“It is a community-focused event where we try and work with our local businesses and promote one another in the community,” said Event Organiser Tony Williams from MBCC.

“It is about bringing people into our region to enjoy the pristine riding conditions and scenery of the Moreton Bay Region.”
