(Any bike is OK – Alex will ride MTB)

Will re-group as reqd. – when safe to do so.

Starting point : Appel Street (opposite the Canungra Hotel and the public toilets).    Suggest you park in Appel Street.    Fully sealed quiet roads, but some parts are quite rough / potholed.

Approx. 4% climb for about 19 km’s + 2 pinches @ 16%.   Stop at a nice 300 degree view lookout, 9 k from the top.    Coffee / snack / toilet stop at destination.   Drink / lunch back in Canungra,  if you wish.    The ride will not proceed if rain or strong winds are forecast.  Caution required due to leaves on road, blind corners, cattle grids and only a few guard rails on some steep edges.        Alex Geels mobile: 0490 456 804.       To save a wasted trip, please ring me if the conditions look doubtful.      Lights a good idea due to some dark areas in parts of the rainforest.  Great views (conditions permitting).   P.S. The O’Reilly’s café is generally open from 0900.  They can be contacted on 1800 688 722.   The downhill is among the best in Qld – but extreme caution is required – otherwise best wear a Superman suit !!.
