Welcome to Cycle CQ

Hi and welcome to Cycle CQ.

My name is Andrew Thompson, and Cycle CQ is a forum designed to help grow cycling as a sport throughout Central Queensland.

Whether you’re into road cycling or off-road, Central Queensland is a cyclist’s paradise.

There are plenty of country roads, MTB parks, fire trails, pump tracks, and velodromes to enjoy on your favourite two-wheeled steed.

Ride anything and anywhere! Just get your butt on a bike! 🙂

Another great thing about Central Queensland is that our cities and towns are just a few hours apart. This means that we can attend each other’s venues and events, and this helps grow our clubs and cycling in general.

The main goal of Cycle CQ is simple – to get bums on bikes. More riders, regardless of their preferred discipline, means more facilities and more opportunities to enjoy our favourite pastime.

Clubs & Events

Cycling is a great way to meet people. Some of us like riding just for the social aspect while others amongst us like to train and compete. Whatever your motivation for cycling, I want to help riders connect with other riders.

The CQ Bike Clubs page is aimed at serving that purpose. As well as incorporated cycling clubs, I’ve included local riding groups in the list.

Often, casual groups are the least intimidating entry point for novice riders and newcomers to a town. If your club or group isn’t listed, contact me and I’ll add it.

Another handy tool on the site is the Events Calendar. I update the calendar frequently by monitoring events from the club list.

We also hold social rides plus I add random articles from time to time. I’ll do my best to keep the site growing and of interest to its users.

Anyway, enough rambling from me for now. Have a look around the site and I hope you find it helpful. I really hope that Cycle CQ becomes an indispensable tool for all the great groups and clubs in our region to welcome new members into their fold.

Have a brilliant day, and see you out on the streets and trails. 🙂
Andrew Thompson
