Western Queensland is a stunning place. Last year’s visit wasn’t enough for me, so I convinced a few friends to return with me and explore a little further west.
After enjoying a long solo ride through the Scenic Rim a few years ago, I wanted to return to one particular section with friends so they could appreciate it as well.
During the heat of summer, we often find ourselves drawn to places where we can cool off. Here are a few such spots we’ve visited over the last few weeks.
Noosa North Shore
A short ferry ride over the Noosa River from Tewantin, there is a vast sandy wilderness next to the ocean, perfect for exploring on a fat bike.
Les and Melba
Once upon a time, a young bloke named Les used to ride his bike from Moogerah to Ipswich and back so he could spend time with his elderly Grandmother. Today we retraced his journey.
Today’s adventure took us on a large loop through the mountains between Kenilworth and Imbil, with a short stint along the Mary Valley Rail Trail
Charleville to Brisbane
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.
“It’s going to rain on Saturday,” someone said to me during the week.
“Let’s turn up anyway,” I replied, “and see what happens.”
I’m glad we did.
