We will spend 3 nights at Boonah, camping at the Showground (or staying at a motel if you prefer and you make you own booking).

Park car in Rosewood over Easter, or travel by train.  A train leaves Roma St at 6 am on Easter Friday, arriving at Rosewood at 7.26 am.

Touring bike or hybrid (with pannier rack) preferred.  There is about 40km of gravel road out of the 220km.

Friday is 60km to Boonah via lunch stop at Harrisville. Today’s hills are near the end of the day.

Saturday is a 65km loop ride to Waterfall Creek Reserve via Cannon Creek Rd.  Today has the most hills and the most gravel road, which is at the start of the day.  Need to bring snacks and a picnic lunch, as there are no shops along the way.

Sunday is a leisurely ride of about 30km to the Scenic Rim Brewery at Mt Alford (yet to check if open on Easter Sunday!)

Monday is about 65 km return to Rosewood, probably via Aratula and Rosevale.

I am not proficient at creating GPS routes, so I will be handing out hard-copy cue sheets.  However, there are not too many turns on any of the days.
