Region’s Cyclists Competing In USQ Ride The Range Sunday May 15

The Toowoomba Range is the domain of cyclists today, Sunday 15 May for the inaugural USQ Ride the Range event.

Approximately 250 riders are tackling the course which started in Toowoomba at Picnic Point, progresses along to Flagstone Creek road, through the Lockyer Valley and Gatton districts before the cyclists return to Picnic Point via the Toowoomba Range.

Professor Bill Lovegrove, Vice-Chancellor and President of USQ is proud to support the event and wishes the 25 strong USQ team well in the event. “The event supports the Prostate Cancer Association of Australia and has been organised through the Rotary Club of Toowoomba,” Professor Lovegrove said. “Many of the event organisers are members of USQ Corporate Club and we all hope the Challenge will grow into a major tourism event over the years to come.”

The riders have two ride options, a 60km option where they ride to Helidon, or a 100km ride to Gatton and back. Additional details are available at www.ridetherange.org.au
