    Depends on how much you've ridden on the road before, and what you're riding. If you're riding a road bike, you'll probably find your local bike shop will have rides, or failing that have a look at some of the other groups (eg. Victor Cycles) that ride out of Milton / Southbank.

    I'm not sure what their attitude is like - I ride with a training squad, but just try a few different ones until you find a group that is cool. Your age might be an issue from a liability point of view, but that should be easily worked around.

    Another option is the bikeways around Brisbane - there are a heap of them - but the surface is usually concrete which means the dodgy joins are a bit tough on roadbikes at any reasonable speed.

    If you're riding a mountain bike, apparently Daisy Hill is pretty cool, but I haven't been out there yet.
