    A few of us are keen on doing the Big Sunny Coast Hinterland Loop. Mt Mee, Malaney, Connondale, Kenilworth, Mapelton, MontVille, Palmwoods, Eudlo, Moololah, Peachester, Mt Mee again.

    It will be a FULL DAY ride, with stops and lunch. Meet at the Marumba Downs 7-Eleven on Dohles Rocks Road for a 7am departure. Being a weekend I expect the Fuzz, so speeds will be sedate.

    CraigACraigA it's easy. On the highway North just after the Gateway meets the Highway you go oVer the Pine River. You take the Very next exit, Dohles Rocks Road. Turn Left, there it is on your left.

    Dead Easy.

  13. Ill be coming from the other way though ( Sunny Coast), so take the North Lakes exit by the look of it?
  14. I can meet you at North Lakes and take you to the 7-11. At the North Lakes Exit there is the Caltex with the KFC and coffee shop. I can meet you there. CraigACraigA
  15. Exit 130 off the M1 if not google street view is your friend!
  16. Where's the fun in that WraithWraith ? :LOL:
    Much better for everyone else concerned if I get lost and then have a story to tell you all over bacon and eggs at our first stop isn't it?

    Seriously, I should be fine!

  17. Bacon and eggs? I suppose that means stopping at the Pitstop Cafe I suppose. I was just going to grab a coffee at the lookout :)

  18. It all sounds like fun. Some wonderful roads in there. If you ride Mt Mee from south to north, make Colonel ColemanColonel Coleman take you back up it before going down again. Make sure he takes you to Maleny via the Maleny Stanley River Road. I'd give Maleny a miss and head down the Postman's Track. It's awful, but Aherns Road to Connondale is good fun.

    That's pretty much what I was doing. I refuse to spend a cent in that god forsaken town of Maleny, so it will be dodged.


    Edit: And you haVe no chance up the Obi Obi road trying to stay with me on the blade, or from Charlie Moreland to Kennilworth, or the drop into Palmwoods now I think of it :)
  20. oh ... I just realised.... DangerousDangerous.... I need to return your chord back.... maybe I can pass it to you near the Sunshine coast? lol
