Glasshouse Mountain ride summary – 26/05/2019
Glasshouse mountains - Fathead and Long-nipple?

Hey everyone, Sunday’s ride sounded great. Below is copy of Toby’s report from Facebook.

Ok hello mtbers.

Bushies ride this morning was at Glasshouse mountains and what a glorious morning. We started off with 12 riders and rode down Steve’s way to the famous drop bog and I think Neal got swallowed up as we lost him. Not blaming the tale end Charlie at all.

We then went along Caves Rd and up around tibbro lookout. Mike decided to stick it up all the e-bikers by going in reverse up the stairs. We lost another rider but this time due to mechanical. E-bike. Then headed around over the sandstone stepping Stones up to another lookout.

Mike took lead and found some hills up to the big Glasshouse lookout. That was when Di phoned an Uber e-bike delivery. Oh and Kerry found walk mode on her ebike.

We then went down to wave rock for a play where Chris was like a kid in a candy store. Alex tried to get a lift out but held on just. We then went back down stevo way to the cars and coffee was had.

Thank you to all I had a fun ride and thanks for the help everyone. See u all next weekend for the community ride. Live to ride.

Ewan Maddock Dam Social Ride 07/04/2019

What a beautiful day on the Sunshine Coast for a Bushies social ride. We had 26 riders ready to go at 7am and 1 at 7.07 am. You know who you are.

We split into 2 groups of 13 funnily enough. The big guns led by Gramme likes a nap headed off looking to climb a mountain but in the end they only climbed a hill.

The second group supposed to be led by The Secretary, but she used her attorney and said no. Not arguing. We head around the dam with a few stops to regroup and a stop for first aid on Sonya’s bike poor thing.

As we came into Landsborough we met the big guns, either tired or with low batteries, along the Stevo way to Ferny with a few riders expecting coffee. Yet again The Sec said not until you do a lap. So off everyone went ebikes first as they get cranky, then the rest of the guns then Amanda setting the pace. Great riding but not sure what the colour of your face was at the end.

Coffee was had. Yum thanks brewhaha. Back to the cars we went with a few riders coming across a local having Sunday carvery, well more like sizzler. With a nudge he waddled off. A few riders took short cuts not naming names. Great morning. Good to see new faces. Good to see Paul Hume back on the bike. Thanks Julie for closing my door. Man flu. Thanks Gramme. Sleep well. 😴

Joey looks up sadly and says “I just wish I could be cooler so I could impress a potential sexual partner of my preferred gender and live happily ever after”.
His friend stops shooing away a large group of crazed, lust-filled potential sexual partners with a stick, and looks at Joey with concern. “Maybe you should buy an awesome Bush Rangers jersey?” the friend says.
Joey’s face brightens up and he says “Yeah?! Do you think that will help? Is that what your secret is?”. 
The beautiful, intelligent yet modest friend guffaws and says “I highly doubt it! They are just cool looking jerseys and it helps out the club. But if you really want to know my secret…” the friend pauses, looks around and then leans in with a conspiratorial smile and whispers four words “Get a fat bike!”.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Buy a jersey and fat bikes are cool!
