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.

GoG.I.R.L. Mystery Ride summary- 16/06/18

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.

Cheers,

Busted Knees, Busted Bikes and Busted Exhibitionists – Glasshouse Mountain Ride Summary 27/05/2018

Busted Knees, Busted Bikes and Busted Exhibitionists – Glasshouse Mountain Ride Summary 27/05/2018
Glasshouse mountains - Fathead and Long-nipple?

So Sunday’s ride was a particularly eventful one with some rather unique events alongside the regular run-of-the-mill ones like flat tyres and e-bike jokes.

As I headed down Roys Road a long cloud was perfectly placed so it looked like Mt Beerwah was an erupting volcano. Maybe this was an omen to turn around and go back home to bed.

We all gathered at the carpark where Brad opened his car boot offering us free medical paraphernalia like bandages and plasters. But I’m sure if you are in need of a kidney or something then maybe have a quiet word and see what he can do.

We hadn’t even been riding a minute when Wayne’s bike just fell sideways and in a blink of an eye he was skidding along the pavement on his knee. So despite a fat-bike’s massive amounts of traction it was still no match for wet mossy concrete unfortunately. A quick patch-up with our newly sourced medical supplies and we were off again.

We rode alongside Steve Irwin Way towards the Mathew Flinders Rest Area. However just before we got there, someone had mistakenly thought it was a deliciously private area for a romantic night of McDonalds and car bonnet sex. We got a glimpse of the strewn underwear and the early morning backseat erotic contortions as we rode pass. I’m pretty sure I heard a hip joint blow out.

The rest of the 20km ride was filled with smaller less-erotic (i guess?) incidents such as a watch falling off, missing water bottles, busted chain guides, leaking and flat tyres and wonky handlebars. However we did check out some amazing views and try a new cafe so it wasn’t all that bad.

See you next week.
