With so many members away on the 5 day ride down south, it was great to see 14 riders at the Woombye Pub for the 8:30 ride briefing. The day was nice and sunny with just a hint of coolness in the air to make for pleasant riding conditions. After a detailed briefing by our ride leader, we headed off past the Woombye School to Kiel Mountain road, and meandered our way via Forest Glen, Eudlo, Steve Irwin Way to the car park at Mt. Tibbrogargin for a pit stop where all 14 riders arrived safely. There was some discussion relating to a certain car driver encountered along the way who seemed to have no idea where he was or going, no idea as to what indicators were for, and an infatuation with brakes. Departing Tibbro, 13 riders headed off along Old Gympie Road towards Peachester, with 1 rider unable to proceed past Glass House without getting an early coffee fix. A good run up Peachester range was possible thanks to an alert car driver who pulled over at the bottom and enabled us to pass, then down Commissioner's Flat Road, and back along Stanley River Road, Mountain View Road, and finally Bamoral Ridge road to Montville and down through Hunchy fo our destination of Rick's Garage at Palmwoods. It was a different perspective doing some of the roads in the reverse to our normal habit. It was a great day out, and apologies for the lack of pictorial evidence. Forgot to pull out the camera.
Thanks to Greg for planning and leading the ride.
