Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge 2021
The Downer Brisbane to Gold Coast (B2GC) Cycle Challenge was set to return in 2021 after a 2020 COVID-induced hiatus. For their 16th annual cycle challenge in 2021, Bicycle Queensland wanted to not only speak to avid cyclists, but to a wider group of potential participants – young and old, able and non-abled, skilled and novice, and everything in between.
