    A message from Velothon Sunshine Coast:

    Welcome to the ultimate winter cycling escape to the sun, bringing together a stunning riding location, dream race set-up and a world class rider experience on and off the bike. Where one day of riding is never enough and you can immerse yourself in everything you love about cycling during the biggest cycling event on the planet.

Fantastic roads and routes, managed roads, King of the Mountain and Sprint stages, all combined with a perfect riding climate and sublime scenery. Off the bike every ride starts and finishes in and around the Mooloolaba area, with a dedicated Velo Clubhouse right on the Mooloolaba beachfront. Open throughout each day and in to the evening for riders, friends and family to relax and share in the experience.
