Diversions and Time Penalties

The Reef to Reef has been designed for riders of all abilities that are looking to challenge themselves. As a result our objective is to keep all riders in the event for as long as it is possible but without compromising the safety of other riders or members of the event team.

  • Diversions – the Race Manager will monitor the pace of each group with an expectation that all riders can maintain a minimum speed of 10 – 12 kmh so that they can complete the course within the allotted time limit. Failure to do so will mean that riders, at the discretion of the Race Director, can be diverted onto a shorter route to the finish.
  • Time Penalties – the Race Director has the ability to apply a time penalty to any rider that is found to have not complied with any of the following rules;
    • Failing to dismount at a marked dismount point or comply with the road rules.
    • Littering or careless disposal of items on course.
    • Offensive language or antisocial behaviour that negatively impacts the ride experience of another competitor.

Shuttle Bus

For stages the Prologue, Stage 1, and 2 you’ll be starting and finishing in the same place which makes it super easy to drive to and from each stage. 

 For stage 3, Sunday 28 July the start and finish lines are at different locations. So, we are running a shuttle bus and bike transfer service* to get you to the start line at Vains Park, Mount Molloy. 

 Pick up point will be the corner of Garrick Street and Mowbray Street, Port Douglas.
