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.
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.
If you don’t mind struggling up one or two really steep hills, Deer Reserve is the perfect spot for an enjoyable adventure with some impressive scenery.
Today’s adventure happened accidentally. We had planned to just ride up and down the beach, but the weather forced us to change our plans.
Today’s adventure took us through the scenic southern section of the Conondale Range near the small town of Kilcoy.
Glen Rock National Park is nestled in a remote valley in the Mistake Mountains south of Gatton. It’s the perfect place to visit after rain.
If you follow the Brisbane River as far upstream as you can possibly go, you’ll end up at Mount Stanley. It’s a beautiful secluded valley, but after a good downpour of rain, it’s spectacular.
