Where to Ride South East Queensland 3rd Edition fully revised and updated! Where to Ride South East Queensland offers cyclists of all abilities the opportunity to get out there and ride through a wide range of terrains from beach front cycle paths to narrow mountain passes winding through ancient rainforests. With excellent year-round weather, great facilities and an easy-going attitude, both local and visiting bike riders cannot help but enthuse about riding in this area. With three main hubs to choose from, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, bike riders from across the state have no excuse to say they have nowhere to ride. Whether you are looking for short friendly rides or longer, more challenging rides for the serious cyclist, this book covers them all. Choose from 77 great rides in total including 26 kids' rides! We have also made sure to include some of the best legal off-road rides from around the region. To help find your way through this book, we have broken the rides into the three main regions with the rides listed from the most northerly to the most southerly. Each ride has been awarded a Where to Ride rating.
Be sure to take note of this as it is a good indicator of how difficult a ride is. Designed to be a useful resource, Where to Ride South East Queensland is much more than just a good read. With clear directions, stunning photography, GPS generated mapping, and interesting background information for each ride, Where to Ride South East Queensland sets a new standard for quality and presentation in cycling guide books. The book uses a gloss paper stock, tough enough to cope with the rigours of sweaty hands and plenty of use out on the trail.
