Coolum to Tewantin ride report
Bloodwood Trail Creek Crossing at Wooroi (Tewantin Forest)

Here is Toby’s ride report from Facebook.

Coolum to Wooroi return was today’s ride. But before the ride even started I popped into Coolum to wish four Bushranger MTB women good luck as they had left their bikes at home and were about to start the 35 km walk in aid of mitochondrial disease. Hope you all have fun Tania, Amanda, Emma and Wil.

So 11 riders set off but not long in Dennis had mechanical woes and had to call it. Up through Peregian Beach and across to Murdering Creek through to Weyba road and out at the RSPCA unit. We had a couple of requests to keep the pace at 24km/hr – no idea why.

Into Wooroi we went and up Wallaby then down to carpark. Tried to find a bike charger for Terry as he was on two bars. We then went down Bloodwood up Daydream and down Milkmaid. Miles fell in luv with his hardtail again.

Heading home Greg (The Mo) decided to pull out and go for a burger and Paul on his sparkly new Giant Trance had a fight with a branch. Only one winner. We called in Rogers towing but he subbied the job out to Miles. John was good enough to ride on and come back to pick him up. Good team work guys.

Great ride everyone. See ya soon.

Cycling in Queensland – More cycling, more often

Cycling in Queensland – More cycling, more often
Introducing the Queensland Cycling Strategy

Best practice design

Hey everyone,

I just received an email from QLD Department of Transport and Main Roads about their Queensland Cycling Strategy which may be of interest to you.

The Queensland Cycling Strategy sets the direction for encouraging more cycling, more often throughout Queensland. It is accompanied by an action plan and Queensland State of Cycling Report, which will be updated every two years to help us prioritise our efforts and respond to changes that impact cycling in Queensland.

More information about things like upcoming projects, policy, networks and safety can be found on their blog at blog.tmr.qld.gov.au/cycling or the website at http://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/Travel-and-transport/Cycling

They also have a Facebook/Instagram competition where you tag a photo with #IBIKEQLD and you could win a bike. More info here.
