July Ride Report

Another excellent winter’s day for a ride.


Meeting at the Caltex at Loganholme, four Wings and one Kawasaki Tourer left at 8.30 sharp.(due to the length of the ride).


Off we went along the Freeway to the City-along Coronation Drive, up Hale Street to Waterworks Road and out through the Gap, over Mt Nebo and on to Mt Glorious and down the  other side to Cedar Park.  This is where we had morning tea whilst waiting for John & Anne Spick. (Sorry about the mix up guys).


Just as we were leaving Cedar Park Bill & Mary arrived.  They decided to stop and have a cuppa and would catch up at lunch.


From here we rode around Wivenhoe Dam to Esk turning off to go towards Gatton.


After crossing Toowoomba Highway we veered off towards Laidley, Rosewood where we stopped for fuel.


From Rosewood we traveled out through Grandchester along which we were told was the scenic route to Rosevale for lunch.  Unfortunately we had to share the usually quiet and friendly pub with a very large group from the FORD CLUB. (Some very nice cars) thus detracting from the character of the place and the quality of the meals which we were lucky enough to experience the day we checked out the ride.

This is where we caught up with Bill & Mary again.  Also very happy to have Paul & Robyn (on a very nice Black Wing) join us for lunch & the ride home. 


The raffle was drawn and won by our guest on the Kawasaki (Chris)  Second Prize was won by Mary Carter.


All fed and watered we headed out now with seven bikes back through Warrell View through Boona and back through Beaudesert, Tamborine Village and towards Beenleigh turning off at Stanmore Road to Stapylton for a cup of coffee and last hurrahs.  Everybody being the great people they are told us what a good day they.  I know we did and I hope everybody else did.  For most a very nice 400km.  By the time we got home it was a mere 600km


Hope to see all on next months ride.




p.s. from me ( it was a better ride over Mt Glorious on the bike than in the car)
