I did a search on Gladstone on the forum and came up pretty thin. I see [MENTION=30495]Mr Messy[/MENTION] is working there. I too am moving there in January, going to make some cash in the mines. I have a few mates up there already, none of whom still ride. I've tried to get one of them back into it and he seems to have lost his heart. It's a damn shame. Anyone that knows, I'd love to hear your feedback. What is the riding up there like? Or am I going to be dissappointed for a few years. I've been spoilt having grown up around the Grampians and living 40 mins from the Yarra Ranges now. I am looking forward to the ride up there in Jan. I'm going to split it over a few days and probably take the coast up as much as I can.
