2021 Bayview Blast hosted at Bayview Conservation Park, Redland Bay, the Blast returns to one of the best event bases around thanks to Redlands Council. The event village includes amenities, skills park, sealed carpark, toilets, bike wash and an outdoor shower.

The Bayview Blast will be held on 12-13 June 2021, the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in NSW and Victoria. Hopefully, many of our southern cousins will take the opportunity to spend a long-weekend in Queensland and challenge themselves with the 2021 Bayview Blast

There is a race category for everyone in 2021.

Saturday participation categories
For those wanting to blast around the course with your mates there is the team challenge. The team time will be determined by the 3rd rider across the line.

In the solo categories there will be categories from Juniors up to open age categories to ride over the 25 km Saturday course.

For the participation categories we follow on from the successful introduction of the E-bike categoryin previous years. This will be the first category of the 25 km course to start. This is for pedal assist bikes only, with no modifications to manufacturers setting permitted.

In the Kids Racing there are 4 race distances for the U15s who just want to have fun down to balance bikes. There is 8 km, 4 km, 2 km and a 10-minute Kids10 race for our youngest competitors. Please note the Kids10 racing is strictly Balance bikes up to 20” wheels.

Sunday is marathon day
In 2021 the Bayview Blast is a Gold Level National Cup round with all series categories available to allow riders to build more National Cup points.

The 2021 full marathon course is 40 km (approx) has been developed by Redlands Council to allow the Bayview Blast to be a 2 lap race add the 16 km start loop and you have a 96 km course with what we believe to be the largest amount of single track for any marathon race in Australia.

Race categories for the full marathon range from Elites through to Masters 7+ including a Single Speed category and Teams of 2 (All Male, All Female and Mixed).

For the Half Marathon it will be a single lap race similar categories for the half marathon are available including the U19 Half Marathon category which is part of the National Cup.

A twisty Green trail with some drops and a rock garden. Beautiful grass tree forest.

If this is your last trail when returning on a long ride then psych yourself for the climbs. Pretty technical track, especially when tired.

Trail The Maze
Beautiful forest, and a unique trail in Brisbane, an enveloping tunnel through the casurinas. Some fun little drops at speed too. Recommend you ride this north to south. Thanks to the trail carers for recently removing so quickly the mother of all fallen trees across the track.

Trail Wolf Peach
Good fun. With A/B lines and lots of roots I'd rate this borderline Blue rather than Green.

In my view this one comes closest in the park to being the flowy trail that a lot of riders expect from a good Blue. Has some rutting and loose rocks issues particularly on the berms, so beware on your first pass.

Nice long trail with some good log features. The climbs and descents are frequent but fairly gentle.

There's a large tree down after the storm, across the track within 1000m of start. Need to carry the bike over or around it. If someonebhas a chainsaw ....

Ride this trail all the time because of its extremely flowy nature (if riding west-east). Couple of great little gaps if you get the right speed and is great for beginners to start off there fast, flowy trails. Best rode when dry, rode it when it was wet last time and had to stay on my breaks on the corners. Best access via the end of Teviot Road and off Teviot Trail.

Top section is really fast with high burms but it is kinda short and you have to climb out before you can start going down again.
