Hi all,I joined back in October last year, but this is my first proper post! So hello!My question...I'm about to up sticks to Ferny Grove, and would dearly love to ride more regularly than I have…Continue
"Umm ... I know how to get from Ferny Grove to Milton.
I've done (literally) thousands of commutes over the years the same way from Arana Hills into the CBD. Which way you go depends more on how confident a rider you are. I guess what gives the…"
"Oh but instead of Shand St, I tend to follow through Royal Pde just to get away from the traffic noise. But the Shand St path should work fine too, provided you find a way to get away from South Pine Rd.
Whatever you do around the area, stay away…"
"Yep on balance I think this might actually be the most convenient way with the others serving as changes of "scenery". Any route between Kedron Brook Bikeway and Enoggera Creek Bikeway will have some hills - the question is just where…"
"Yep that's the one. I don't think I've ever been closed passed on that one but I do always try to make things as simple as possible for drivers whom might be of similar standard. Some sections of it have decent footpath. Some a bit…"
"Thanks for all the replies!
Glad to know I'm not a complete wimp for tryng to avoid at least some of the hills too ;)
I had a look on Ride The City and I think I'll be experimenting with a few routes in April when we move in -…"
"One more somewhat reasonable alternative to Kedron Brook Rd is the "bike route" more or less marked in Google Maps between Newmarket and Alderley. Very easy to get lost on it the first time and some surrounding streets are much busier than…"
"Welcome to BC Ky.
I actually rode out again to Arana Hills and back into the city last night straight after work wearing long sleeved office clothes. It's actually not a bad ride, so long as you can work out how you want to negotiate with the…"
"I'm not trying to be negative but;
1. Wardell st-suicide
2. Settlement Rd-suicide
3. Go with Aaron's suggestion, all the main roads in the area you describe have no shoulder and are choked with cars.
I'd have a look at KBB-Kedron…"
It might be a bit more out of the way, but the (mostly) off-road Kedron Brook bike path starts off behind Keperra train station. You could follow that all the way in to your current route, which I assume is down Kedron Brook Road, the…"
"Reading down to Aaron's comments...glad I'm not the only one who thinks Fagan's Road isn't the best choice for a bike route. I'm currently riding from Kedron and I go up Bowens Hill past RBWH and round rather than…"
"Ah ha...maybe this post would be more appropriate here...
My question...I'm about to up sticks to Ferny Grove, and would dearly love to ride more regularly than I have been recently (its really taken a toll on my belly!), however the choices I…"
