Thank you so much to everyone who participated in, supported, and volunteered at the Tour de Brisbane on Sunday 11 July, 2021. We can't wait to see you next year for another amazing event on fully-closed Brisbane roads.
Experience Australia’s ultimate ride in the Tour de Brisbane 2021, supporting heart and lung transplant research. With over 110km of FULLY CLOSED city roads and a new home at the Brisbane Showgrounds, the Tour de Brisbane supporting The Common Good is one ride you don’t want to miss! There will be multiple rides to get you moving with distances and challenges for everyone. Whether you’re going for a pedal with the fam or going for the podium, there’s a ride or race for you.
Ride for a cause. For 2021, we're on a mission to raise $125,000 for heart and lung transplant research, but we need your help. So grab your bike, rally the troops, and join us for Brisbane's best bike ride for transplant research!
100% of the funds raised in Tour de Brisbane 2021 will go straight towards supporting the vital work of organ transplant medical researchers backed by The Common Good.
The research is time critical - for every $44 raised, another hour of research work can occur. Through fundraising, every single rider and every single donor has the power to make a huge impact on the lives of worthy Queenslanders.
We have a whole host of fundraising information, ideas, images and words ready for you to download and use to help achieve your fundraising goal.
Entering a corporate or community team is a great way to rebuild morale after a rocky 2020.
Riding as a team in Tour de Brisbane 2021 can be set up in GoFundraise, allowing you to pool your individual fundraising efforts as well as receive donations as a group. Teams can be made of two or more riders, across multiple event distances. Time to recruit your staff, family or friends for Tour de Brisbane and organ transplant research!
The Cycle of Giving first started in 2006 after one of its founders, Mal Long, received a lifesaving heart transplant. Mal and his wife Mary wanted to acknowledge and thank their donor family; the team of doctors, nurses and specialists at The Prince Charles Hospital; and to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation.
By 2012, the event had grown so much that the Queen of Hearts (as Mary is affectionately known), decided to pass the event organisation baton onto The Common Good.
Thanks to your support, the event continued to grow to a point where it needed to evolve again! It's why we are joining forces with Tour de Brisbane to introduce a broader rider population to the need to fund more organ transplant research.
Yes! The Common Good is the charity partner of the Tour de Brisbane, with 100% of fundraising going directly to help fund organ transplant research, just as it did with the Cycle of Giving.
Absolutely not! Our transplant riders are just as important as ever and will continue to be acknowledged as such with a special jersey. We will have some more information available soon on how to order these jerseys. The jersey sizing chart is available here: https://www.scody.com/content/47-sizing

Riders in the 110km may choose to bypass Mt Coot-tha by turning left off of Birdwood Terrace onto Mt Coot-tha Road. This will be signed and included in the ride briefing video and rider guide. Important Notes: 1. Riders who choose to bypass Mt Coot-tha will not gain the commensurate distance elsewhere on their ride; their overall ride shall as a result be shorter than the advertised 110km distance. 2. Riders who choose to bypass must give way to all riders who are coming off the descent on the approach to Legacy Way return. This will be signed and marshalled, and adequate lines of sight for both sets of riders prior to merge point will be created. 3. Any rider in the 110km who chooses the bypass will continue to have their time recorded but will not be eligible for any age group placing and will not be eligible to qualify to the Gran Fondo Championships. 4. There will be a timing loop at the base of the climb at Simpsons Road and a loop at the summit adjacent to Channel 2 Station; a rider must cross both these loops and complete the full 110km distance to be recognised in the above placings. 5. Riders who are behind the advertised speed minimum or curfew time will be asked to use the bypass; the roads must open at the advertised time in accordance with the road closure permit.
