Noosa Trail Network:

1. Still looking for available dates to run a Bushranger Bikes ride between school holidays and other commitments, two or three night trip to the Noosa Hinterland to ride some of the Noosa Trail Network.  It's certainly dry enough at present so the trails are will be in awesome condition.  Mid 2019? - Watch for dates and info out in a newsletter soon.

NOTE: 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.

Rail Trail:

3. Kingaroy to Kilkivan Rail Trail - possible 2 to 4 nights - exciting itinerary!  2 nights camping, 1 night camping or cabins, 1 night at a country pub! Details out soon.

Recon and test trip done, now for the fun - tour itinerary to follow.
