BVRT Experience - Bike Week 2016 at Toogoolawah to Fernvale

May 22, 2016 all day
The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is a largely undiscovered gem, right on our doorstep. This brand new event will explore the trail from Toogoolawah to Fernvale, rolling past historic sites, through fertile farming lands and crossing the mighty Lockyer Creek and Black Snake Gully.The 64 km ride will take most riders the best part of the day. It will start at 9 am at Toogoolawah, after a bus transfer from Fernvale. There’ll be rest stops at Esk (after 20km), and Coominya (43 km)See More
