NOOSA STRADE BIANCHE
Traversing the beautiful Noosa hinterland, the Noosa Strade Bianche – Grand Fondo is a 135 km loop encompassing quiet country roads, stunning vistas and characterful country towns. In keeping with the original L’Eroica, there are several imposing climbs & challenging descents, and of course many sectors of ‘strade bianche’; the ‘white’ or unsealed gravel roads. En-route, there are an assortment of cafes & bakeries, even a country pub or two, for those so inclined.
