THOUSANDS of cyclists will slip into lycra for the weekend’s annual Brissie to the Bay cycle race to raise money for multiple sclerosis.
The event will bring extra cyclists in the Redlands on the same weekend that train tracks will close for general track maintenance between Park Road and Cleveland stations.
Translink have warned that train services would be affected from about 11.30pm on Friday, June 16 and would return to normal from the first service on Monday, June 19.
Buses will replace trains in both directions from Park Road and Cleveland.
Starting at South Brisbane, the 100 kilometre Brissie to the Bay course will see cyclists heading to Wellington Point and Cleveland, while the 160 kilometre course participants will continue to Redland Bay, Mount Cotton and returning to the start via Capalaba.
Brissie to the Bay organisers have notified motorists of the following local road closures:
- A reduction in speed to 40 kilometre in both directions on Green Camp Road from Manly Road to Rickertt Road from 7am to 9.30am
- A lane closure on Panorama Drive at the intersection of Woodlands Drive and Boundary Road from 7.30am to noon
- A lane closure on Boundary Road at the entry onto the roundabout at Redland Bay Road from 7.30am to noon
