David, 4-4.5 hours sounds reasonable. Let's hope the temp doesn't get too high too early!

Yep I'm riding from Carseldine-toying with the idea of staright in via Gympie rd due lack of traffic-but will assess on the day.

Are we talking 4 - 4hr 30 mins? 

So back at starting point at 10am'ish?

I may be interested if I can convince the boss to do the child ferrying service.

Are you riding from Carseldine Terry?

Kelvin, I'll be riding in, want to meet somewhere?

Is Terry mangoing or triking? I have a tentative booking for going camping but if it falls through would be up to starting but turn back half way.

Terry, are you riding in from home or transporting the mango to the start?


Comment by Terry Burn 8 hours ago

I'll be Mangoing, but happy to go at a relaxed pace!

You'll be alright Kelvin. It's not going to be a super fast ride, pace would be around 22-25kph. This route is mostly flat. If we have enough numbers, I'm thinking we might do a coffee stop on the way back at Lady Marmalade Cafe at Greenslopes.

I'm keen but I'm not sure if I can keep up in my trike?
