Balmoral Cycling Club is proud to present the 2018 O'Donnell Legal Balmoral Junior & Women’s Tour on Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1.
The 2017 edition was awarded the Cycling Queensland Open Event of the Year reinforcing the event's status as the premier junior cycling event in Queensland.
This four stage tour attracts riders from all regions of Queensland along with interstate riders and caters for junior riders from U9s up to U17s and open A - D graded women.
2018 marks our 8th edition and inclusion in the inaugural National Junior Road Series (NRJS) allowing U15 and U17 Queensland junior riders to earn points towards the series classification. Expect large and high quality fields in these categories. Last year we attracted over a hundred junior riders and almost 50 women.
This year's Tour includes a prologue at Ipswich Cycle Park, road races at either Mount Marrow or Ipswich Cycle Park, hill climb at Mount Gravatt, and criterium at Murarrie Recreation Ground. Category stage and GC prizes will be awarded as well as NJRS leader's jerseys.

- Government Relations
Tom is always available for a free no obligation discussion, so if you need legal advice or representation, please consider supporting the company that supports us!
BOQ is one of Australia's leading regional banks. We're also among the few still not owned by one of the big banks.
At BOQ, most of our branches are run by local Owner-Managers. This means they're running a small business and understand what it means to deliver personal service.
We pride ourselves on building long-term customer relationships that are based on mutual respect and understanding.
We have more than 170 branches across Australia and in each and every one of them you'll find us really getting to know our customers and recognising the things they need. It's how we've been doing business since 1874.
BOQ’s community investment strategy focuses on assisting young people across Health, Education and the Arts. BOQ supports a range of not-for-profit organisations aimed at making a positive impact on real issues affecting young Australians to help them be the best they can be.
Blueline Architecture, established by club member Jason Walters, specialises in architecture, interior design and project management for residential, education, commercial and industrial projects.
Jason first joined Balmoral in 1985, (that’s him to left competing in the 1988 Qld State Championships wearing his Balmoral kit).
When his son, Lachlan, showed an interest in cycling there was no better choice than to join him up to Balmoral!
Jason and his son Lachlan are both members of Balmoral and are proud to support the Club.
Dear Fellow Cyclist,
I fell in love with cycling at the age of 11 and I have been fortunate to have enjoyed riding my bike all over the world. From racing at the World Championships to touring Europe on holiday with my wife, Bronwyn, riding on a Saturday morning with my friends or on the bike paths with our kids, cycling continues to bring so much to my life. I want Planet Cycles to bring that same joy of riding to you and your family that I enjoy with mine.
The Planet Cycles Team is here to enhance your riding experience - they know it because they live it too! I hope you like our new generation store - I am excited about the opportunities we can now offer and look forward to seeing you and your family in our completely rejuvenated new mega store.
Enjoy the ride.
Planet Cycles Owner and Company Director
