For the last few years I have wanted to take a long ride on my bike from Charleville to Brisbane. A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to do it.
Today’s adventure followed a large hilly loop through South-East Queensland’s “Scenic Rim” region. At times I wanted to bail-out, but I’m glad I didn’t.
It’s challenging to have a cycling adventure when quarantine restrictions have closed all your favourite trails. Darb sent us these photos and video of a recent circuit he did close to home, in Devonport Tasmania.
Even though we must keep our distance from each other, we’ve still been having a lot of fun together while remaining apart.
We love riding together every week. That’s not currently possible because of the social distancing restrictions caused by COVID-19. Here’s how we had fun together while staying apart.
A few months ago, Jason wondered about the possibility of riding our bikes to Rainbow Beach via off-road tracks. After a few exploratory adventures before the big day, we finally worked out a route…
Darb is moving permanently to Tasmania. Today was our last chance to ride with him before the move. He suggested we ride some local trails, because that’s “where it all began” for many of us.
Over seven hundred kilometres west of Brisbane, Charleville is home to more than 3,000 people and a thriving pastoral industry.
My friend Simon caught the train there recently, and rode his bike back to Brisbane.
This is his story.
