The 'Five by Five' was a great
program of rides - thanks to all who came along, joined in the
fun and supported Bushranger Bikes.
1. What's next? Okay I need to keep
coming up with some new, fun and exciting cycling activities
so one I have been considering for some time is my
Two Brews ride!
This will be an afternoon ride in the
Brisbane Northside burbs with a distance of between 25 and
35kms, bike paths and connecting quiet streets, mainly easy
undulations - so nothing too strenuous. The concept will be to
ride to a couple of my favourite secret establishments and
sample one of their specialty cold brews in each location.
Cost will be $25 per person and
includes the ride, the two brews and lots of fun!
Bookings will be essential and you
will need to be in to find out what it's all about - otherwise
the secret will be out!
Once I have set a date I will send an
e-mail newsletter out to everyone who is signed up.
2. Also - again once I have worked out
available dates Bushranger Bikes will be running a one or two
night trip to the Noosa Hinterland to ride some of the Noosa
Trail Network. These are mountain bike trails - not
necessarily technical but some big climbs that can be testing
if moutain biking/off-road cycling is not something you do a
bit of. These trails are great, views brilliant,
location awesome but expect to get off and push some sections
and be tired at days end!
There will be some hotel accommodation
(comfy but not 4 star) available and plenty of camping options
for rigs & tents.
Bookings will be essential.
Again once I have set some dates and
have ride details I will send an e-mail newsletter out to
everyone who is signed up.
