Brisbane to Gold Coast 2016

Postby myforwik » Tue Oct 11, 2016 7:07 pm

Anyone doing it this year?

Is it possible to a seat on trains on the way back probably around 11 to 1pm?

Yah... lots. Weather's looking good :-) My brother's going to try to do it (his first 100) on his MTB.
He's pretty handy actually for someone who doesnt use clips or cleats.

I suppose some trains get crowded out, but last year the one i caught sometime (after a swim and breaky) wasn't full.

When it comes to trains top tip. Head south then head north.

Having my first go this year. Thinking about rolling back to Brisbane depending on how I'm feeling.

Is the easiest way back to Brisbane to double back and use the same route? Are the roads decent?

If anyone spots a Wallace and Gromit jersey...it will be me...so say g'day! taking this one easy with new to cycling buddies attempting their 1st metric...in for a long slow day ha ha.

I have incorporated the "Whinge Stick" into our plans so that should spice it up towards the end.

Pretty much, roads are good.

I normally follow the same route back to Beenleigh then head across through Bethania to head back to my area of Brisbane. (SW suburbs).
