Bicycle Queensland Bundaberg to Brisbane, 2008
30 August - 7 September, 2008
3 of our members - Caroll, Cathy, and Lesley - crossed over the ditch
At the start in Bundaberg. Our 3 plus 1,197 other cyclists.
First overnight stop was at Woodgate Beach. Here is Tent City.
The girls had a more exclusive camp.
Mary Poppins in Maryborough on day 3.
Cathy stops for a coffee - showing off her new Dahon.
Lesley conducting a stretch class.
Not too many BIG hills on days 1 to 4.
But there was a BEAUTY on day 8!!!!!
RAIN. After the rest day at Tin Can Bay it started raining
during the night. And then it BUCKETED down for the whole day.
But the girls managed to set up camp that evening under the squash club verandah.
After that, they encountered the steepest hill!
This cyclist did not make it.
On day 8 they
struck the longest hill.
Have another look at the elevation profile above.
Then it was reward time with views to The Glass House Mountains.

Next day they were
able to explore Brisbane's cycle paths
before heading home to reality.
