Are you lads riding on Sunday? I am keen to get back out on my bike after 3 months off. No problems for me driving down for a meet up. Pick a place and a time.

I was hoping to get out for a pedal tomorrow - but as per my PM to the OP it was a maybe - now more likely an unlikely - I have huge amounts of backyard project stuff to get done tomorrow before the builder gets here on Monday to lay footings.

Perhaps we could arrange a southsider's bunch river loop for one Sunday morning, with a couple of weeks notice?

I am at Parkinson and ride everyday. Week day is work commutes to the city and weekends more fitness rides.

Weekends may be a Parkinson to Redcliffe and back by home via logan, kingston and browns plains roads. This is a 150 or so km ride. Or an easier Parkinson to city, river Loop and back home via logan, kingston and browns plains roads - about 100ks.

I am out rain or shine if interested - though I am generally out the door by 5am leaving plenty of time left in the day.

PM me if interested.

Waza sounds good. We could meet down browns plains road somewhere at Marsden. I will do the pre-ride from my place to yours as part of a warm up. We will swap PMs to organise.

I also live in Parkinson and would be keen on this next Sunday I will PM yourself and Wazza as to start time and where to meet. Most of my riding is the commute to and from Brisbane Airport so Distance is no problem with me.

Schurms what bike do you ride? We may have pssed each other at some stage as there is not a lot of cyclist in our area. I ride a carbon black Felt F5.

My weekender is a Red Baum, my weekday commuter is a black specialized Epic. Most days I am out the door at 5am. I generally don't see anyone else out this way either.

Stoo and Shaun-b we could meet up somewhere for sure.
I don't commute as I work locally but do a couple of training loops during the week city and back and Saturday morning when I can (usually have to be back home by 8:30am due to work) but Sunday is very free in terms of cycling.
I am planning to do a Wellington loop this Sunday from forest lake if anyone is interested to tag along or be picked ip along the way.
Nice and cruisy with a distance of about 100km from here and pace from 28-30km / hour if that suits people

I work in the city so a mid week ride / loop is out for me.....if i'm riding to the city i may as well stay there and work for the day.

However Sunday looks good for me so far.....i was wanting to do a Richlands / Wello point / Cleaveland loop soon anyway.

28 - 30k/h is good for me too.

Will keep an eye on thread this week and let you know towards the end of the week.

Schurms would you be interested in the above ride to Wello on Sunday morning if Le Velo and and Stoo don't mind us tagging along? We could perhaps meet somewhere central and make a time? Is this ok Le Velo and Stoo?

Go and see Andrew at FP.

He might even fit you up for them seeing as you bought the bike there.

Happy for anyone to tag along for sure .... Even for someone to lead the way as I usually just follow in the pack and not 100% sure of the exact road but will have it loaded in the garmin.
Planning to leave forest lake at 6am then pick up whoever on the way pending on the route.
Open to other suggestions also but prefer to do the long rides on Sundays :D

Wello sounds good for a Sunday scoot. I assume a Wello loop from Forest lake may go down compton road, then kingston, Underwood road, Rochedale then follow Mt Gravatt-Capalaba road and Birkdale Road. I am sure we will get there. 30kph good for me too. 6am start or thereabouts means no lights either...

Any bike shop should sell shoes and CLEATS. The first pair i got were shimano and i think the shoes cost me just $100.....they were not flash but they did the job.
