Sandy Creek is a small tributary of the Brisbane River which flows down the Great Dividing Range from Benarkin. Today we decided to follow it up the range into the vast plantations at the top, then roll back down to our starting point.
Curramore is a farming community on the northern edge of the Blackall Range near Maleny, overlooking the scenic valleys formed by the Mary River and Obi Obi Creek. As with any ride which starts on a mountain we expected three things: good views, fun descents, then tough climbs back up the range afterwards.
“Let’s keep it simple,” I suggested after last week’s epic group ride.
Today’s route was straightforward – up the beach to the Mooloola River, then back down again to Caloundra.
For the last few years a large group of mountain biking friends have gathered for an annual “party on wheels” riding through the Glasshouse Mountains. This year sixty-eight happy riders took up the challenge.
My friend Adam offered to show us around some of his favourite local tracks, which gave me the chance to relax and follow everyone else for the day.
Have you ever enjoyed the view from a lookout and wondered what it would be like to explore the valley below it? Today we did just that – exploring a hidden valley near the upper reaches of Byron Gully, west of the D’Aguilar Range.
Would you like to join us for a tough social ride over the D’Aguilar Range to Reedy Creek?
I’ve never done a solo hike and camp-out before. Today I thought I’d see what it was like.
