Time:    8.00 am to 10.00 am
Meeting time:    7.45 am
Meeting place:   Orleigh Street at Hill End, near the ferry terminal

Note from Alan:  If anyone wants any help at all getting there or would like to put their bike on my rack and come with me in my car or even borrow a bike, just give me a ring on 3822 1437 or contact me via email:


Starting at the Hill End of Orleigh Street near the ferry terminal, we will travel through South Bank, over the Goodwill Bridge, then take the Bicentennial Bikeway to Toowong, turn left into Archer Street, then turn right into Glen Street, travel along Sandford Street, Guyatt Park (toilets here), Macquarie Street, through the University of Queensland, then across the Eleanor Schonell Bridge, with a steep climb to Highgate Hill and a well deserved coffee stop at the Flour Power Bakerhouse, Highgate Hill.

After coffee, it's downhill along Dornoch Terrace, Ganges Terrace, and Hoogley Street to return to Orleigh Park. 

Distance - approximately  21 km 
Terrain - mostly flat with one difficult climb
