When you have a few days off and a bike, you can put your hands to the handlebars and just hit the road! So I left from work and headed for the hills!
Brisbane to the Gold Coast and work! Start getting excited about midday – then it rained! Oh well, it’s only EVERYTHING wet! I’ll survive.
I don’t care how many times I do it, I enjoy the little trip from Nerang through Canungra, Beaudesert, Boonah, Aratula. If you’ve only got a little bit of time, just do it. You won’t regret it.
Next stop was Warwick – some dry clothes, a good night’s sleep and get ready for a day or two in the sun.
I then decided on where I would head: no particular order. Texas, Allora, Millmerran and Leyburn.
Luck would have it – the BEST riding weather for weeks – the sun was shining, birds were singing and I had some great bike riding roads. From Stanthorpe to Texas has to be one of those ‘great’ little roads.
I met up with a heap of riders – Ulyssians, rally goers, general travellers. Hell, I even got to ‘talk’ to Mr Plod!
Leyburn is always great – I love its history!
Allora and Millmerran were picture perfect!
Between riding, talking, eating and sleeping, time disappeared and my few days of leisure were over!
But WOW – just to escape to nowhere – going somewhere – just to be ME.
What more could you ask?
