BEAUDESERT TO RATHDOWNEY RIDE FOR ROAD BIKES WEDNESDAY 1st July - A ONE DAY RIDE, NO OVERNIGHT STAY RIDE LEADER Gary Abdy 042289355

This is a single bunch ride of 109kms at cruising pace of 28-33kph, commencing at 8.15am.

When you approach Beaudesert from Brisbane, fork LEFT into Beaudesert CBD through to the end, then turn RIGHT at the lights to follow Mt Lindsey Highway (Route 13) towards Rathdowney.

About 50 metres along from the intersection, turn RIGHT just before Caltex servo, into a free carpark where the ride will start.

FIRST LEG - BEAUDESERT TO RATHDOWNEY 59kms
DETAILED DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN BELOW

We head south along the Kerry Road through the stunning Kerry Valley, climb a ridge, touching 15% near the top,
and drop down to the next valley, along undulating/flat roads to Rathdowney. There is about 1km of gravel road.

Head into the Rathy General Store for coffee and food. When rested, we restart -

SECOND LEG - RATHDOWNEY TO BEAUDESERT 50kms
DETAILED DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN BELOW

We head back the way we came in for a few kms but then head north on different roads with a couple of short climbs around 7% and a few rolling ridges.
There is a 2-3km section on Mt Lindsey Highway but we found traffic to be virtually non-existent.
There is also a 2km section of gravel after we turn off the highway.

RIDE PROTOCOLS
As a new ride with a number of turns, I don't want to lose anyone so the bunch will stay together
on the flat/rolling country with re-groups at the top of each climb and rolling re-groups after each descent.

Call me with any queries 0422893556 or email gary2908@optusnet.com.au
