Ride was good although the wind was brutal....sideways over the hornibrook... and going down the gateway going home was crap... and worse strava added the train trip to my distance ridden so I had to split the ride which ended my gran fondo2 challenge... at least it didn't rain

Ah see there is the reason god decided I wasn't going to ride... Not only was I going to have to worry about all the bike and road 'things' I'd also have to contend with swimming from Redcliffe
Hope you all had fun... When's the next ride I can enter???!!
That's a shame that you didn't get to ride yesterday.
That headwind would have been brutal, I bet some were wishing that the ride had been on last weekend, you wouldn't have hardly had to turn the pedals!!
There is the Ipswich 100 coming up on Sunday April 13th.
Coot-Tha Challenge is in May (later than recent years)
The past couple of years has been the 7Pillars ride sometime in ? May
Brisbane to the Bay is June
Brisbane to the Gold Coast is ? October sometime
Robbie McEwan's Gran Fondo Ride is ? September
That what comes to mind at the moment and there's probably more.
Yeah those winds through Redcliffe wouldn't have been nice.
Was hard enough getting around at 8:30, saw some of the signs for this and knew there would be some hard peddling ahead later. Almost got blown off going round one of the roundabouts in Scarborough and pushing 25 on the bridge was a struggle was glad to make it over and find some respite.
In addition to that list, there is also the Buderim 9 in December usually plus last year wiggle.com did a ride in the tweed in November
Just chiming in to second this. My first "big" ride was the Ipswich 50 last year. It was a nice ride and not too crowded. It's on early April. Next I did the Brissie to Bay in June. A few more people but had a few more skills so a nice ride too. And then proud to complete the Brissie to Gold Coast in October. And this from someone new to road biking and, I suspect, just a few years older than you.
Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm super keen to do more riding!
Venus - oh wow bne to Goldie in first year of cycling?! That's great, would love to do something like that! Don't think I'll be quite good enough this year though.
Wish I was here in apricot do the ippy one, unfortunately I'm away on holidays.. Will def put it in for next year.
I think it was a blessing not doing the Sunday ride, I had injured my back (catching a cheerleader) and was on ohysio table x2 last thurs/fri... Feeling much better now and can't wait to do more rides!
I started cycling Feb last year and I rode the same as Venus62 ... I completed the 66km Brisbane to Ipswich, then the 100km Brissie to Bay and then Brissie to Gold Coast plus commute to start.
This is my possible list for this year: plus I am now commuting to and from the events where possible now
