A weekend all about the bike, featuring some of the most challenging riding in Australia... set amongst an idyllic mountain backdrop.
Founded in 2009, the Battle on the Border has grown to become one of the leading cycling festivals on the East Coast of Australia, providing a competitive staged racing tour and social rides to participants from across the nation and South East Asia.
For 2017 we are excited to be welcoming the National Road Series for both men and women, the classic Battle on the Border graded tour, a new Challenge on the Border age group program and Legends Tour, and expanded Fondo social rides including the new FamFondo on 21km of closed road.
Our new home base at the Murwillumbah Showgrounds brings a number of integrated travel, accommodation (glamping), and dining options and we are excited about the new partnerships we are forming to create an exciting space that celebrates the Tweed Valley's food, drink, and culture.
