Pt Cartwright - Sunshine Coast

19 September 2018 - Cruise the Sunshine Coast Number 2:

Another Winter/Spring mid-week adventure - Wednesday 19 September 2018 – Caloundra (Golden Beach) to Point Cartwright return.  Approx. Distance 50kms.

Requirements: Expect a reasonable riding distance (50kms or more) so you will need to be comfortable riding your bike over this distance and timeframe (up to 5 hours) – the times include riding time and stops – morning tea and lunch – and are a rough guide only.  Travel time to and from the rides is additional.  Bring plenty of water and an energy snack as conditions could be warm, and also pack wet gear in case of rain.

Category is bike path/road.  The tours are Grade 2 easy to intermediate.

The ride will include a morning tea and/lunch stop (great café at Pt Cartwright) – meals, drinks etc. are at own expense.

Cost – The ride is $40 per person, or $50 including a seat on the B Bus – see below*.  Includes an EMS Power Bite.  Contact me to book, for more info or if you have any questions - payment on the day is the go!

*There is a transport option from Ferny Grove available – limited seats - so enquire if this interests you.  Rough guide – aiming to be on the bikes at Caloundra at 9:00AM, so this would be my place at 7:30AM.

More details on the ride – times, meeting points etc. will be provided after booking.  Bookings are essential – jon@bushrangerbikes.com.au

Other Stuff:

- Bushranger Bikes 'Twilight Italiano' ride! - completed.  Great fun - watch out for the next ride!

- Bushranger Bikes 'Two Brews' ride completed.  Looking for the next date for this one - keep an eye on the newsletters!

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.  Late September/early October? - 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 happening in the next couple of weeks - tour itinerary to follow.

I will keep everyone posted and send an e-mail newsletter out to everyone who is signed up.
