The local bike riders cycle from Airlie Beach back towards Proserpine. Their group times are available on the triathlon club website, https://whitsundaytriathlonclub.com/. There are three main rides. The first is what we call the small loop, from Airlie to Proserpine and back, which is 50km. The second is the big loop, which is to Proserpine, north to the Gregory Cannon Valley road turn-off (about 15km further up the highway) and then back to Airlie. This is 60km. Last, but not least, is the 100km dam ride, which is to Proserpine, riding through the main street and keep following that road to the dam. It's a great ride. On any of these rides, you will find a local bike rider, jump on the back and enjoy some local company courtesy of Island Time.
