"You can bring any bike .... So long as it's made from steel, has downtube shifters, and an '86 model or older." That was the general jist of the eighth annual Noosa Strada Bianche, an inspiring event held in the glorious environs on the weekend of August 11 & 12.

In this fascinating article Bicycling Australia contributor Stephanie Constand details the rise and rise of young German sprinter Pascal Ackermann ... a rider sure to be going shoulder to shoulder with Australia's Caleb Ewan over the next few years.

Now less than two weeks away, more than 1100 riders are expected on the start line of the Noosa Classic, Bicycling Australia's first Gran Fondo Cycling event for the Sunshine State of Queensland.
