Cycling in Brisbane Australia
There are plenty of northside commuters on here who will be able to give you good advice, however here is my route to and from the city.
I would recommend the return route from the city on this strava activity as a good inbound route as well, but others may offer some fine tuning. I live at Carseldine, but you can pick it up from the Chermside area and see what you think.
My quiet route from the outer north to the King George Square via 7th Brigade Park, designed to avoid known issues like the Kittyhawk Drive intersection. I haven't been riding much this year due to a knee injury, but if you're keen I am prepared to accompany you if we can tee up a suitable day.
Fantastic! Good work Sam.
Great to hear. Which route have you ended up using?
Way to go, Team!
Good stuff Sam
..and all the support crew
I commute from Clayfield, and pretty much follow the same route from near Wooloowin station to the CBD. I only average about 22km/h inbound on my commuter bike. It's the slowest of all my regular rides.
I think that it's just a bit too stop-start to go a lot faster.
People on bikes are not like cars (or maybe they are!). Every time you stop and start on a bike it knocks your average around and takes a lot from the rider.
Good going Sam. 'Tis a joy to commute by bicycle.
