The Ride is a shorter version of The Race, the flagship distance at L’Étape Australia by Tour de France.

In 2021, The Ride will be 80.6km and will feature 1,237m of elevation. It is the perfect course for riders who recently took up cycling and want to enjoy the unique Tour de France atmosphere as well as for riders who want to enjoy a ride with their friends.

The Ride is organised on fully closed roads and participants in The Ride will receive the same experience as participants in The Race, only the distance is different.
