The 48km Medio Fondo departs from Williams Esplanade in Palm Cove in front of the Surf Club. This palm tree lined; beachside paradise will be a magical destination to begin our Medio Fondo (medium ride). This distance will open up the opportunity to ride on Great Barrier Reef Drive with no traffic to a much broader group of people. There are a few hills along the way, so we would encourage you to train for the ride, but it is well within reach of many who might be looking for a challenge.
There are plenty of Aid Stations along the course to keep you fuelled and hydrated and you will have the opportunity to experience riding your bike along one of the most spectacular roads in the world; Great Barrier Reef Drive, which will be fully closed to traffic in both directions.
