Gazelle repair

Late last year I bought a Gazelle 3-speed Toer Populair with diamond frame and rod brake style levers. It is second-hand and the previous owner said it was bought in the Netherlands.I'm loving the ride, and despite the limits of a heavy 3-speed bike I prefer using it for my commute (11km from Sherwood to Brisbane CBD).

Helmetless Riders

Commuter Advice = Redcliffe to the Valley

Posted by Angel Maher on February 24, 2017 at 4:57pm 2 Comments

Hi All!!


I'm moving to Redcliffe soon and would like to explore the notion of riding to the Valley from Redcliffe 

I commute only to work - not a road rider on weekend etc

Is anyone able to advise how long it might take and if it's safe to ride along the wetlands etc early in the mornings or when it gets dark in the winter...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
