Most times it’s not about the destination.
Sometimes it’s not even about the journey – it’s about the people you share it with.
Today’s ride took us through the shady creek gullies and steep foothills of the Great Dividing Range west of Brisbane.
Q. How does a mountain biker get from one side of town to the other?
A. Via as many dirt tracks as possible!
Today’s ride took us in a big loop from Fernvale, up the rail trail to Coominya, and back via Lake Wivenhoe.
My friend Andrew asked me to show him some good off-road ways between Brisbane’s north-side and the Sunshine Coast. What a great excuse for a ride!
A railway branch line once connected Caboolture to Kilcoy. The railway has gone, but the trail remains. Today we explored some sections of that line.
Today’s adventure involved kayaks and bikes as we traced out a large loop around the North Pine River and Redcliffe.
With its wonderfully long descent, and gruelling uphill climb, today’s ride through Mapleton National Park was the perfect place to prove the old saying: “What goes down must come up”.
