Recent Tour de Tweed
Toughest Cycling Course
With courses ranging from 200km to 400km, crossing challenging terrain and highlighting the beautifully unique volcanic caldera environment, this event is one of the toughest in Australia.
The Battle is a wonderful event for the cycling elite to bring their friends and families to support them over the four day festival and explore all that the region has to offer.
The Battle’s flagship Racing Tour is a multi-stage, multi-division race that extends across the cycling disciplines: individual time trial, criterium and road racing. The Tour offers a unique athletic and environmental experience for men, women, and juniors, varying from difficult mountainous climbs to endurance distance courses.
At the highest level is a five stage NRS men’s tour. The remaining divisions compete in a four stage tour open to all members of Cycling Australia.
Conquer your bucket list and climb Mt Warning! Experience this ‘must-do’ cycle that kicks off the Battle’s program. A gruelling climb up the volcano will reward you with stories and bragging rights for a lifetime.
Founded in 2009, the Tour de Tweed (previously Battle Recharge) 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. The Battle draws hundreds of riders and thousands of spectators each year to challenging and picturesque courses designed around the unique caldera communities of Northern New South Wales.
