Ride July 19 2015

Indooroopilly River Loop

Date:     Sunday July 19
Time:     9.00 am to 11.00 am
Meeting time: 8.45 am  Rig up time for 9 am departure
Meeting place: Meet in Railway Avenue, southern end adjacent to Indooroopilly Railway Station (unrestricted on-street parking on weekends)


The route follows a section of the bicycle route as shown on Local Travel Map 5, Brisbane South-West.  The roads have very light car traffic but the route is very popular with cyclists.  The section alongside the Brisbane River is where many enthusiast cyclists go flat out so don't be surprised if you are overtaken by a small peloton.  The terrain is pretty flat with just a couple of very minor hills.  Much of the route is right alongside the river.  On the return at Graceville we will follow along the cycle way/road beside Oxley Creek.  After crossing Oxley Road at the pedestrian crossing, we will cycle past some of Brisbane's grand old homes on the way back to Indooroopilly.  Loop back to Indooroopilly for coffee.
