Ride For Isabel, working with the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation, will raise funds to pregnancy loss at Cairns Hospital. Ride for Isabel will be held on Sunday 27th August 2023.

It is with great disappointment that we must convey the unfortunate news that the Tour of the Tropics has been reluctantly cancelled for this year. We understand that many of you were eagerly anticipating the event and we share in your disappointment.
The decision to cancel the race was not made lightly and was a result of several challenges that we all encountered this year. Among these challenges, we faced riders committed to overseas events, numerous late cancellations, and elevated travel and accommodation costs, all of which had a significant impact on our participation numbers and ability to provide a competitive and safe event.
To our sponsors and supporters, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and continued commitment to the Tour of the Tropics. Your enthusiasm and dedication to our sport and the event have been a driving force for us, and we are truly grateful for your involvement in the event over the years.
Looking ahead, we are steadfast in our determination to overcome these challenges and ensure that the Tour of the Tropics returns as a resounding success in 2024. To achieve this, we are carefully considering revised dates for next year’s event. Our investigations have led us to believe that holding the event in September could be more optimal, ensuring no conflicts with other events that attract similar interest.
In closing, we want to reiterate our appreciation for your support and enthusiasm for the Tour of the Tropics. We remain committed to providing you with an exceptional and memorable event in the future.
Wishing you all the best in your cycling endeavours, and we eagerly look forward to welcoming you back to the Tour of the Tropics Cycling Race in 2024.
