Moreton Bay 100

Just wondering if anyone participated in the Moreton Bay 100 last month? How did you find the course/ride.

Generally it was a good day. I was with a group that took a wrong turn by mistake (missed a sign) and we cut off 20km of the 100km course.

The organizers did a good job, and they said that the signs will be improved for next years event.

I missed it altogether. I didn't know it was on.
Where did you hear about it?

No your thinking of the Brissie to the Bay Ride in July I think.

The Moreton Bay 100 was a small charity ride from Lawnton around redcliffe and out D'Bay and Narangba for a local Lions Club Youth program

Actually I heard about that because someone posted on another forum about there being a "Zupps ride" on that day.
Seems it was not well promoted as that was the only word I had of it until now.

Yes that was the one i was thinking of. It's a pity there wasn't more publicity about this one, hopefully it's on again next year.

Good course but some critical areas were not marshalled or some clowns had removed signs. We lost about 6pm from a missed turn.
If they did better with gps courses those of us with gamins could follow a route
Charity was youth program local area.
Will definitely do it again next year.

I had a flyer on my car after completing the Ipswich 100 back in April. The ride started at Lawnton and is promoted by the Lions club. Here is a link to the web site, http://moretonbay100.org.au/Home.htm.
