Hey Bushies.

Today’s ride was at parkies. 14 keen riders turned out with a couple of guest riders. We had Will’s sister (Hannah)and his niece (Luca) who is a very strong up an coming junior. She handled Parkies with ease even after racing in the Bayview Blast yesterday.

After a big v lap we run into Fluffy the resident emu who was just about to start a coaching clinic with Foxy. Up through Cancer Tree. Up the SSS’s over and down Rock-a-dial to 4ways. Through the Meadows up TNT then up Shit hill over NZ to top of Radar hill then down Rocket man and finish on the old fav Ho-chi-ho.

Good loop no major incidents and no lost riders. Some riders went for shit coffee but I went to 711 for great coffee – Yum! Have a great week. Ride hard stay safe. :o)

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.
