Maybe we should start a new thread? Do you have a link to the Binna Burra ride? Have heard the ride to the natural arch/bridge is good?

I have done the Binna Burra ride from nerang railway station in the past.
Nice ride, or at least it was when i did it last, almost 5yr ago.
Not steep, just a gradual climb.
The only difficult bits that i recall is at beginning (finding a low-stress route through Nerang) and at the very end (almost had to walk the last km)!
I am in if T-Rav and Ldrcycles are.

Yep lets do it, whatever the route we decide. I think redrover was looking to do a ride around there also?

:D . My tentative plan is to start in Canungra and go up to O'Reilly's and back (about 70k), then up the back of Beechmont to Binna Burra and back (another 54k). Keeps it to a reasonable distance so as to make chasing KOMs easier :) .

My tentative plan would be to meet you in Canungra and follow you up to O'Reilly's and back to Canungra and then put the bike back in the car.
Canungra to Beechmont is way too nasty a climb for me.
Sorry to be a wuss but i did it 25 years ago and it was too much for me then so its too much for me now.

Sounds good, i'll be on my Apollo with the XTR rear derailleur and 32t cassette, so I will fear no gradient :lol: . At least not uphill ones :shock: .

Really cannot believe it that we didnt have to stop for an eternity at the Mollison Rd intersection this morning.
The traffic lights must be malfunctioning.
And Max, correct enunciation of Forkblade next time. Please.
