A great opportunity to ride with the family around the same course the criterium races have just been held on. What a wonderful opportunity for the kids to feel a part of the Port Douglas Gran Fondo Festival!

You’ll have an hour to ride as many laps as you like before the final lap bell rings and you cross the finish line for the last time.

There will be prizes for Best Dressed Family, Best Dressed Individual and Best Dressed Bike.

PLUS ALL KIDS WILL RECEIVE A FREE ICE CREAM FROM CHOO CHOOS ICE CREAMERY!

Cheered on by the crowd gathering for the Cairns Post Criterium and the upcoming Hemingway’s Brewery Sprint, the Choo Choos FREE Family Ride is the perfect way for the family to have some fun together and be active.

Entries are essential, and numbers are strictly limited, so ensure you enter as soon as you decide to ride!

On the day, please come to the registration desk to collect your wristband which will provide access to the track!
