GoG.I.R.L. Mystery Ride summary- 16/06/18
A big thank you to our local ladies Debbie, Louise and Fiona for taking us on a fun Mystery tour showcasing our beautiful Glasshouse Mountains. Seven started at Matthew Flinders Park, Beerburrum along with 3 boys on the side for the longer loop of 50km.
First we warmed up riding south past Tibro, through the forestry before climbing up to the Glasshouse Mountains lookout where we picked up some more goGIRLs who were keen for a shorter loop (or maybe were not keen on a big hill climb first up, or enjoyed an hour more in bed, I’m not sure which). Sonja had to get home early to make pizza bases from scratch, for what ever reason. After introductions, we headed north on Range Rd, up Snake Hill and rode a combination of trails on what was a perfect winters day.
Highlights were Tania and Amanda playing stuck in the mud and the gorgeous mountain views that kept us company the whole ride. We finished up with a great feed at the look-out cafe. We were reluctant to leave because the view was mesmerizing but after saying our goodbyes, we continued on our tour picking up some speed and having some more fun on the downhill Kokoda and the Luge, both aptly named.
Tania as usual picked up some gold and finally we were happy to be heading back, stopping a few times to marvel at the magnificence of the mountains. Debbie knew all the mountain’s names and their faces. She and her friends had taken their time to plan an awesome ride to best showcase them.
We really appreciated your leadership and company. It was great to ride locally on this Mystery tour with some awesome chickies. Thanks Erica, C.J. & Rene for joining us today. Hope you enjoyed your ride and we see you all again on the trails soon.
Don’t forget next weekend is Ewan Maddock Tunnel ride, this is suitable for GOGA graduates and #adoptanewbie participants. Keep Saturday 21 July free if you like fast and flowy or slow and cruisy, choose your level. This is a ride not to miss.
