The Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Experience
Sunday 22 May, 2016
Bike Week is an annual cycling festival which features a range of events – both on and off the bike – making it the largest cycling festival in Queensland!
This annual celebration of cycling has been held every year since the early 1990’s, and is organised by Bicycle Queensland who pedal the message of getting more people cycling more often.
For the very first time, Bike Week will be featuring the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Experience.
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).
Bike Week exists in order to encourage people of all ages, sizes and cycling abilities to get into the saddle by offering a packed schedule of events during the week. So whether you’re a recreational rider wanting to socialise with like-minded bike riders, a regular rider wanting to participate in some more challenging events, or if you haven’t been on a bike for years and want to test the theory that you can’t ever forget how to ride a bike, Bike Week offers something for you!
