Don’t Despair……..Audax FNQ is Back !!!!!

After our prolonged pandemic-inspired holiday, Audax FNQ is (cautiously) swinging back into action.  It’s time to re-lube that chain, pump up those tyres and touch up that paint job……


Sunday 1 November 2020 – 51km Phoenix Dirt and 75km Phoenix Road – Atherton

To kick things off again, we are starting with something a bit shorter in distance but still with the same great camaraderie of FNQ Audax.  Perfect to get those legs moving and the motivation flowing.

Our Phoenix rides will start in Atherton on the Trail Head at the end of Vernon Street (near the council car park).  Both rides loop through Yungaburra with plenty of great scenery along the way and time for a coffee  stop.

Registrations are now open:


We will be trialling our COVID-safe plans, including contactless Brevets, hand sanitising and social distancing.   Please work with us to ensure we get safe systems in place for everyone and can keep running FNQ Audax rides.

Check-in begins at 5.45am, with rolling starts from 6am to 6.30am.   More details to follow.

If all goes well (volunteers and riders are safe/comfortable; COVID plans work OK; no community transmission; health regulations allow large groups outdoors), our annual Christmas ride – Rudolph’s Revenge – will be held on Sunday 6 December 2020 on the Tablelands.  We hope to launch our 2021 calendar with heaps more road/dirt cycling to come.
