Global Fat Bike Day (#GFBD2016) is an annual celebration of Fat Bikes and the wonderful places they can take us. This years ride took us for a long ride up the beach on Bribie Island.
“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.
There are no ferries to South Stradbroke Island. The only way to get there is to hitch a ride on a friendly boat…
It was the shortest day of the year. Forecasters predicted it would probably be the coldest day of the year too. What a perfect excuse to go camping!
“High winds, heavy rain, rough seas.” The forecast was bleak. In this sort of weather we decided our best chance for a good ride was to go to the beach – away from muddy trails and fallen tree branches.
Although we’ve ridden on Bribie Island many times, the continually changing tides and seasons make each visit a different experience.
On our recent holiday to Rainbow Beach, we saved the best ride till last. This loop out to the freshwater lakes, and back via Double Island Point must surely be one of the most spectacular rides you can do.
I’m currently exploring some of the wonderful places around Rainbow Beach, including Fraser Island, Double Island Point and Great Sandy National Park
