[QLD] Group Ride 20/03/11

Discussion in 'QLD' at netrider.net.au started by PeskySheepy, Feb 23, 2011.

  1. I'm starting to itch for a bit of a ride before Uni really kicks in. Anyone keen to do the south-west ride Kojihama proposed before the Brissy floods?

  5. (Edit: Just checked www.131940.qld.gov.au and they've put a re-opening date for the Mt. Lindesay Highway now. Edited my post accordingly)



    Mt. Lindesay Highway will apparently be repaired and re-opened by then, so that's good. :)

    Yeah, I'll go. Might be able to round up a friend (and maybe pillions).

  6. Yay! I was going to actually post to see if someone would organise something... us Brisbanites seem to be rather lazy with organising rides :p

    That route seems a bit different to the one I suggested, but i'd be down for some action! Put me down as a tentative for the moment.

  7. I just grabbed the map link from Scotty's post. Feel free to modify it, make it shorter and whatnot. : )

  8. can't figure out how to modify an existing map :(
    suggestion: run lions road instead of mt lindsay, goes from just outside kyogle to just north of rathdowney.
    yeah i know it cuts out a lot of ground, personally i HATE mt lindsay. i've never once seen it without being covered in rubbish, and given my track record for almost going off the side of mountains, be fkd if i'm risking that drop

  20. If the Taigum gang want to meet up, we'll have to be at the Taigum shops around 6.30am for a 6.45am departure. It's about an hour ride down to Yatala.
