This Thursday 4/10.......



........From Gympie up to Tiaro via Nth Deep Creek /Anderleigh/Bauple, then across Glenbar Road and through Running Creek to Kilkivan and homewards via Black Snake Road, Widgee etc

Slow paced ride. About 250(?) k's mostly shire gravel roads, with some easy forestry roads and necessary bitumen.....a couple of possible fuel stops if needed.

So far there's 2 of us leaving Woolies Caltex (near Hungry Jacks) Gympie 8.00 Thurs morning.

Please see first post in this thread for a bit of general info. (and carry lunch)

joining your rides

Hi guys, I will be interested in joining some rides midweek when I can. I have been riding for about 6 months getting brave enough to join a ride, then last thursday at gheerulla I hit a tree (low speed 15kph) and broke my wrist. I have subscribed to this thread and hope to come along when I am fit enough again. Keep posting please.

Stay tuned. I'll look forward to seeing you one day when the wrist is better.



In the meantime, any more for this Thursday?

Keep taking photos Dave, good riding all through there.

If you blokes head north, give me a shout.
I'm in Hervey Bay, don't mind heading down to Gympie if we are going north.
Some good riding in the Wongi out towards Biggenden or Tiaro out to Kilkivan.

We went across from Tiaro through Glenbar and Akuna Roads yesterday and we'll be up that way again sometime. Or keep any eye on this thread as well ....never know what else you might see that suits.

No probs, thanks.
Couldn't have went yesterday, school holidays and I'm babysitting the unruly mob.

This Thursday Nov 1

Leaving Gympie 8.00 if anyone else is interested.

For a start about an hour on the bitumen out to Kinbombi. Doing a bit of planning for a Sunday ride in a few weeks and I mostly want to check out if I can still get through from Jimmy's Scrub to Wrattens (via easy tracks) so there might be a few dead ends, stopping to take notes etc. (Might even be closed with forest harvesting). From there probably just back to Gympie via Widgee across to Amamoor etc.

All pretty easy. Have a look at the first post in this thread and a few of the pics to get an idea of what it's about.

Apart from me getting us lost,hot, turning back a couple of times, running over inmate AJC's new video camera and heading home early with bits falling off my bike, it wasn't a bad day out today.



Perhaps I should've taken this as a .......err.... sign



Thanks, Andrew. Better luck next time.




We did find this nice little spot up in the hills.

No worries mate. You'd be welcome anytime you see something that interests you.

Are you at all familiar with the S.E. corner or totally new to the area?

As well as the weekday rides I'm thinking about a possible Sunday social ride through some of the country covered in this thread. For anyone from Brissy or the coast probably meet at Jimna or Manumbar, go as far north as Brooyar and wind up at Kenilworth.
