The ride starts off with a very pleasant ride from the Luke Harrop Circuit, Runaway bay up to the end of the Spit, then down past the beautiful beaches from Surfers Paradise through to Pratten Park (just south of Kurrawa Park) at Broadbeach. It’s at this point that riders turn back and retrace the route right through to the finish line back at Luke Harrop Circuit (riders do not go back up Seaworld drive on the return route).
