Nebo Glorious - My favourite ride

A riding mate introduced a few of us to the Lumpy 100 a couple of weeks ago. Start Toowong, Mt Coot-tha going up frontside, ride across to Waterworks Rd, swing over Settlement Road, left at Samson Rd, over Camp Mtn, cross westside back of Samford, Mt Glorious to the village, down (mostly) Mt Nebo, across Gap creek Road and back to Toowong. About 100km and a great morning out. Early start needed to beat the heat!

Here is a course for the Lumpy 100 - (this is the ride leaders course)

It's a good solid strength trainer.

I've heard that Glorious on Oz day is a thing, though only via unreliable second hand rumours!

Can anyone confirm or otherwise, and fill me in? Is it an organised by any group in particular etc?

Thanks!

Yes it is true. It's not organised, but there may be some groups.

In the past, there has been some friction with motorist, who regard this road as their private racetrack on public holidays. Mainly because some cyclists overtake three or more deep on the bends. Be very careful.

Can't really remember but I think it was 6:30 at the servo on waterworks/settlement intersection and 6 somewhere in the city (maybe toowong?) Used to be >100 people a few years ago. Don't know what it's like these days.

Up Nebo Saturday, avoid the first coffee the shop, the owner is not bike friendly, he went mental at us because we sat on his chairs before his shop was open, calling us all c**ts, talk about biting the had that feeds you!

Looks like one of the other cyclists that day gave him a review http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/337/1612057 ... Mount-Nebo

Thanks for letting us know Merlin...
I have used that coffee shop four times now, including bringing the family up after a big ride... After hearing that you were treated so poorly, I will give them a miss from now on...

Other side of the story:

I actually brought this post up.
Sounds like there is more to this than has been said here.
And it is not the first time he has had to have words with cyclists using the surrounds of his cafe as their own personal urinal.
I know what my reaction would be if I found people out in my backyard doing that sort of thing.
Cafe opens at 8am.
Toilets can be found at the National Park 200m or so back toward Brisbane.
Then again he is probably not upset to lose you guys.
Plenty of other cyclists, runners, tourists etc who are respectful for him to serve


Nugai wrote:Sorry but I have been going to that cafe for many years.
Never had an issue with the previous owners or this guy.
Someone must have been doing somethig wrong for him to snap like that.
As I said there are 2 sides to this story.

can't really comment on what happened before, but he was really having ago at the guy just sitting on his chairs not doing anything.

I think people go round the back looking for toilets and when they find them locked pee in the tree.

Can you get up there at the moment???

Traffic reports are saying Nebo/Glorious Rd is closed after a roll over yesterday, but tbh, I reckon that after last weekends deluge the road surface will be in a bad way making the descent difficult.

Went up this morning all fine and clear to the Goat Track. Not sure if you can get to Glorious or not.

I was planning to the other day and mum called to say the Goat Track-Samford was closed off due to water over the road from South Pine. The steep decent was closed due to a landside and debris at the hairpin. Mt Nebo-Mt Glorious was open to light traffic only for necessity. Mt Glorious-Whivenhow-Summerset Road is still closed due to very large amounts of falled trees, power/phone lines, flooded and landslides.

Goat Track - Samford is fine. I got a message saying Goat Track to Mt Glorious was open. West side of Mt G is still closed.

Also for those wondering, current condition of the Goat Track:

Nice footage Kurt, it doesn't look as bad as what I'd imagined.

I think one's fitness would determine how "flat" it is...

In my case, it was far from flat... ;-)
