Canungra to Mount O’Reilly’s
September 1 @ 7:00 am - 12:30 pm
A group ride from Canungra up to Mount O’Reilly’s – Ride Leader Alex Geels 0490 456 804.
Will re-group as required. – when safe to do so & CODIV aware.
Distance : 73 km return.
Starting point : Appel Street (opposite the Canungra Hotel – the “Tudor” one opposite 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 @ 18%. Coffee / toilet stop at the top, then head back down via a nice lookout point. 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. Rear light a good idea due to some dark areas in parts of the rainforest. Great views (conditions permitting).
P.S. Currently the O’Reilly’s café is open only intermittently. They can be contacted on 1800 688 722 closer to the ride date to confirm if they are trading on the day. If closed, suggest you carry an extra snack/drink.
