Cycling in Brisbane Australia
Anybody with info about a Lake wivenhoe ride event in July?
Last Saturday 22rd July I was riding my motorbike along Lake Wivenhoe, to plant water / ISO bottles for my big ride the next day, since there's not much to drink there. I happened to go past a cycling event that gathered a few riders, but not too many. I didn't have time to stop and ask them, but later I tried to get more information about the event, as I'd like to do it next year since it is part of my playground there.
I couldn't find anything easily on the Internet about this event. Is there anyone here who knows about it?
They had a refuelling stop ("ravito") between Northbrook Pkwy and Somerset Dam, and also a sort of ad-hoc carpark used as a "base". The party was rather limited, to two scores or so. Cyclists seemed to be cycling clockwise around the lake.
On my way back from the Dam, it was nearly sunset, and the "race" seemed finished. A small group of them decided to go back up Road 9 towards Mt Glorious, I found that really cool and challenging.
Hope to get a few bits of info in here.
was it this -

Nope, not a trail, it was a road cycling event.
Maybe a randonnee , though I don't see any Audax events around the dam on the day you said, though they often ride out that way.
I figure anyone who would have the need to drop extra water for a ride would probably like randonneurring - perhaps just your cup of tea ... or perhaps water.
In any case, maybe you should join the Audax Australia (https://www.audax.org.au/public/index.php/riderinfo)
Aaah, I'm glad to see "randonnée" has been imported. Here's an update for you: "rando" is how we actually say it.
Yep, I'd be interested indeed. Thanks for the link Mate!
Could it be the Ride To Conquer Cancer? I know they go through there? I can't find a link to it just now but I'm sure they camped overnight at Wivenhoe.
Nope, the ride you mentionned took place on 20/08. Thanks for trying.
I'm confused. Last Saturday July 22??? That was months ago!
Also did you start multiple threads?
Don't worry Daz, last + DD/MM = that date within the last year.
Last without a date means last. :-)
