Weekday Cruisey Rides...Gympie and surrounding areas.

I'll be using this thread to post the occasional weekday ride........see how it goes anyway.

Depending on where we're heading, start point may be anywhere from Kenilworth to Tiaro. (I'm in Gympie) and cover roughly between 200 and 400 ks as far afield as (say) Woodford, Childers or the South Burnett.

These are slow, easy paced rides with an emphasis on having a bit of a look around the countryside via gravel roads and the easiest tracks, with stops for sightseeing and a bit of a yarn. Mostly there'll be only the minimum bitumen but on some of the rides further afield, there may be more tar back roads.

So that's....SLOW and EASY.......it's up to the individual, but any rider of reasonable capabilities should be OK. Don't worry about being too slow.

On the other hand, while everbody is welcome, if you're looking only for a bit of pace and more technical stuff, this may not be for you.

Express interest via this thread and feel free to post rides in here if you feel it's appropriate. For rides keep an eye on the thread.......if you don't visit the forum regularly, it's apparently possible to set up email notification of new posts in a particular thread....check it out.

Thursday 02/08/12 Amamoor-Brooyar-Wrattens-Kandanga



Please read first post.

That's this Thursday.

About 200 k's of gravel roads, easier foresty tracks and necessary tar......fuel at the start, finish and halfway mark (Widgee shop). Nothing hard but some sort of knobbies'd be handy.

Meet at Matilda Kybong (that's on the Bruce about 10k's south of Gympie) in time to LEAVE at 9.00am. Carry a bit of lunch or take your chances.

Bump.

Got one other starter for Thursday. Any other takers?

Or let me know if you might be interested in future similar rides.

Yes, Fridays are good. If you like I can work out a bit of a loop from a halfway meeting point (Booubyjan?). Be warm enough for an earlier start in a few weeks.

Richard

Did you get down around Anduramba etc? Oldmanmuzza and I passed through Toogoolawah towards Crows Nest and back up to Cooyar on our way to Bunya Mountains last week. Some of the side roads looked promising. Now that the weather is picking up I wouldn't mind having a look in there one day.

If I have a few days notice I can arrange a day off. Preferably not a Wednesday as that is my Management Team Meeting mornings. I will keep an eye out for updates.

No worries. We'll definitely work out something on a day that suits.

Top day today. Perfect weather, good roads and pleasant company. What more could you want?

Two starters.....Andrew from Pomona on a DRZ400 and Mick from down Yandina way on a (I'm guessing here)...mid 70's(?) BMW..... I haven't been through that Wrattens-Kandanga Rd for a while and it was a bit rougher than I remembered, but no worries to Mick.

Thanks for coming out gents....I had an excellent day and hope we can do it again.



First stop on the side on unknown mountain between Amamoor and Glastonbury. (I'd like to know the name of it.....seems to be to the NW of Moorooreerai.)






Andrew




Mick

Great ride

Great day out, big thanks to Dave for organising it and definitely count me in for the next one.

The only stress of the day, which track to take next.


Perfect skies, perfect weather, perfect tracks.


Where else would you rather stop for lunch


Mick, let them mock, she's a work of art.
