If anybody is interested in riding some hills I'm planning to do Mt Mee for the first time Sunday. Looking to ride out via Lutwyche/gympie and come back through Samford & Settlement road. Leaving South Brisbane at 5:50. I'm not real quick I'm just lightweight so I go uphill alright to begin with. Average speed I would estimate around 26 for the whole trip.

I'm writing a blog post now, but it was a lot worse than i was expecting. The first 2k are actually bitumen now, and up til the school campground the dirt is in fantastic condition, but after that it goes to hell in a big way. Like cobblestones but bigger and with jagged edges. It was so rough i was down to 1st gear and 10kmh on the moto. The last few kms have recently been graded for logging trucks, but then spread with loose pea gravel. With 32mm+ tyres and extreme care you would probably get through, but the chances of pinch flatting would be sky high, and it will take a hell of a long time.

I know i was the one who suggested it, and almost any price is worth paying to ride up the Jimna range, but it's right on the limit. Definitely check it out yourself and see what you think.

I drove down Brandenberg today, on a family geocaching outing. I forget how good the views are from there.

Even better if you go all the way up to Eagle's Nest. :)

Well, we've done group rides all across the southside and out west so how about something on the Northside (there's SSS ride don't forget) but for those with roadies how about a ride to Kilcoy and back via Mt Mee. We could make a couple exploring detours aswell near the dam/Stanley Creek. On the return we could go via Campbells pocket/Rocksberg/Petrie and back. That way if some are on time restrictions, tired or too hot they could easily bail at train stations anywhere along the Caboolture line from Caboolture-Bald Hills.

I did the CC 3P's in 2014, great weekend away.
By the last 30k there won't be any groups, just the limping wasted bodies of what used to be vibrant energetic cyclists.
Enjoy.

the last 30kms is where I hope my coot-thas come back into muscle memory. the first 10kms of falls is about equivalent to 5 coot-thas

Buderim 9 would be a good training run...

Buderium 9 would be a drop in the ocean compared to 3 peaks. It's less than 1500m of climbing. I think you would be better served by repeats of Bellthorpe range rd. Steep and quiet. Perfect for hurting yourself and perfecting your descending skills

Mt Glorious would be better imho. And no I'm not saying that because I have koms there :P In reality 3 peaks is about the same elevation total as going from the goat track start to Sommerset road and back to the goat track start with a run up to Mt Nebo/Mt Glorious via the Goat Track. That's about ~4500m in climbing. Zupps to Lake Wivenhoe and back via Eatons Crossing is about 3.8k from memory.

Yes, from listening to stories from my old store owners. They did that ride in preparation for peaks challenge GC about 2-3 months out. Seemed to work for them to post 11.5hr times.

Yep with 200k in the legs you have to do the equivalent of 4xCoottha backs in a row after W-T-F, put the biggest gear on your bike it will take, you're a solid guy, you wont regret it as you zig zag up ;)
Recently put a 32t on 6800 Di2 for a Japan Alps trip, there was much laughter directed at me initially, but guess who was laughing in the end.
