    Alternatively a few of us *might* be doing a big loop up through the gold coast hinterland if anyone is keen.

  2. Hey adam,

    I was thinking about rolling up for some of the 'twilight series'
    races......

    Can you give me a tip for riding from the CBD to the Nundah track??
    I've perused the refidex, but can't really work out teh best way... I
    have no 'northside sense', so don't really know the good/safer roads
    from the death traps!!

    Cheers,
    Abby

    Hmmm...there's no really direct way to get there...read this with a referdex and see if you get horribly confused! Alternatively you can just follow me :)

    Follow Queen Street towards the Valley, so go past the Orient Hotel and then past all the camping stores like K2 into Wickham St. Follow this all the way down to Breaky Creek. It's slightly downhill all the way so it's good fun.

    Cross the creek and turn left at the lights into Amy Street which goes past the Breaky Creek Hotel carpark. Go left/right/left/right to get out onto Sandgate rd along breaky creek. (basically just head in that general direction and you'll get there).

    Follow sangate rd up to the big 5 way intersection at McDonalds and then turn right up the hill towards Triathlete's World where you turn left onto the Albion Overpass, then first right into Hudson Rd where you'll have the railway line on your left. Cross over at the first bridge and follow Bridge rd with the railway now on your right.

    Go straight at the roundabout into Dawson st and cross over Junction Rd at the lights. Turn left at the end then right into Shaw Rd. At the football ground turn right onto the bikepath. Follow this all the way to Toombul shopping centre carpark. Cross the road and follow the bikepath along the canal.

    Pheww.......

    You can follow Sangate Rd all the way to Toombul shopping centre but it's ferkin horrible, busy and hilly. There are a few other options, going past the RBH. I can send you a UBD map if you like.

    Thanks for the reminder Adam. After 3 weeks of extended Christmas
    pig-out and no bike, I don't know that I could haul my lard-sack up the
    hill! Perhaps I'll start at 5 and see you at the top. Not going to
    Glorious?

    Also the Beer Mile is happening at the bottom oval at Griffith Uni at
    4pm, so email me for details.

    If all my mates go riding, I might have to skip the double fun-run in
    favour of the cheaper option!

    I take it that the "annual run up Mt Nebo" is not actually a run?

    Thats just crazy talk!!!

    Ah trail loops. Reminds me of the high school cross country races - 2 laps including a bush loop. I was remarkably adept at hiding (unsupported) and waiting till the runners returned for lap two. And they wondered where I got my kick from. :D
