2 Day Adventure Ride - Gatton, Blackbutt, Nanango, Belltorpe, Mt Mee 70% dirt, 620km
Mostly easy adventure ride, two detours listed for sections that could be gnarly for the big bikes or inexperienced riders. Out west from Brisbane to Lockyer State Forest, then north to Hampton and Blackbutt and an overnight stay at Nanango. We usually stay at The Palace Hotel, good old fashioned pub with accommodation as low as $17 each if three or more sharing a room, meals from $10.
Next day a bit of slabbing to Kilcoy, then north to get into Conondale State Forest. Watch the occasional red sections of road which get very slippery after rain. As of Aug 2013 the road through to Bellthorpe has been graded and in great condition, but will eventually become a rut fest again no doubt! On to Woodford then back to Brisbane via Mt Mee State Forest.
Video below shows much of this route but we did head north to Imbil at the end instead.
