Yeah I think going out for extra long rides two weekends in a row would not be a good move. Extremely bad for marital harmony...

Hi all,

I am keen to tag along next time. I would have come along last weekend but I was racing at Mt Alford.

Ok i'm heading for Brisneyland again :) . Planning on doing the full climb to Best of All lookout from Mudgeeraba on sunday (and then maybe returning around the northern end of Hinze Dam unless someone has another suggestion?) then on monday heading out to Esk to do a ~100mile loop up Esk-Hampton Rd (http://www.strava.com/segments/615159) then back through Murphys Creek and Gatton. And then if i have any legs left at all on the way home i'll nip up to Kilcoy and have a crack at the climb up to Jimna (http://www.strava.com/segments/3176603).

That's the good thing about Gentlemans rides. Its about enjoying the ride rather than a smashfest. Well, you can still have a smashfest up the climbs but look how many times we stopped for photos and admired the scenery. Good thing we didn't end up in a ditch on the side of the road like that Hyundai did :P

Re BOA for Sunday this is the much easier option so gets my vote, if you want to hurt yourself do it reverse going up the Goat Track

Sorry should have been more specific, this sunday is the plan. I've just lined up a job interview on thursday though so if that goes well i might have to work anyway, fingers crossed.

Sorry Pine Creek Road, connects Nerang-Murwillumbah to Springbrook Rd.
I assumed you were going to go home that way after BOA lookout.
Let me know if you want a link to the Strava activity.

I thought that must have been it, i couldn't see any other roads going up there. The intention is to park at Firth Park at Mudgeeraba and start from there, i'm happy to just ride up to the top and back but smithstreet expressed an interest and he has a thing for adding more and more and more to every ride :lol: .

What about this?
It's a tick over a Gran Fondo, so nothing tooo humungous.
http://www.strava.com/routes/448487
Earlier start the better.

I haven't done the Panorama before but have heard about it's 'awesomeness', so it's about time I had a crack.
Even if you guys don't want to do BB, I'll probably head that way anyway. Seems a shame to spend an hour in the car (each way), to not make it a 'fullish' day.*

* Disclaimer: Sounds like reasonable logic at the moment, but come Sunday, the plan could turn to poo.

Who knows what actually happened but there was minimal damage done to the front. More than likely they were distracted somehow... maybe a cow on the road and swerved to avoid hitting it up ended up off the road on some very soft and wet grass missing all the road side signage and slid nice and slowly into its current spot at the bottom of the ditch.... :lol: :lol:

Sorry should have been more specific, this sunday is the plan.

Hmmmmm. What time were you thinking of starting?

I'll have to wait and see how I feel after the Gent's Race Sat, and how many beers I neck at the finish line.

By the look of your 'palmares', feel free to punch about 20 in to you!! (to give me a remote chance of keeping you in sight up the climbs) :|

Yuuuup. +1 haha. I'll more than likely do some small recovery ride to keep the legs moving after the 170km RGR or sleep in before riding back home.

Yea that's the sort of thing i was expecting :lol: . I'm up for that one (again, assuming the job interview doesn't result in me starting work sometime over the weekend).

What is this "Panorama" of which you speak? Should i try and get the Velo Ecosse ready so i have triple cranks? :)

You won't need a triple Pinto. I've seen you climb.
(Says he who hasn't seen it!!)

Sorry, I have seen it on Google street maps... It looks steep on that. :shock:
