Winter Warmer 2008

Share this post TFUPM Posted June 28, 2008 in Shop News

This year's Winter Warmer ride will be held on Saturday and Sunday 9-10 August. We will be covering 250 km in two days and will be staying overnight at the picturesque Tranquil Park at Maleny. We will depart Lifecycle and head out to Samford via Ferny Hills. The first major climb of the day will be the Samford range, approximately 1.5km long. We will pass through Samford and head to Dayboro after about 20km of relatively flat roads. Once we hit Dayboro we will be ascending Mt Mee, the major climb of the day. The Mt Mee climb is approximately 6km of steady climbing followed by 15km of undulating dairy country. A very steep and fast (80km/h) descent follows which will put us 8km from Woodford where we will stop for morning tea at the Woodford bakehouse.



After refueling, we leave Woodford and head up the Beerwah/Kilcoy road towards Peachester. This road passes the site of the folk festival and is really beautiful flat valley riding. The terrain changes after about 20km when we begin the ascent to Maleny. This climb begins with a steady 2km climb after which we turn left onto Stanley River road. This bad boy is probably the hardest of the day with quite steep sections and varying grades throughout. Don't despair, this is the homeward stretch and leads us to a left hand turn into Mountain View road where will be staying for the night. Upon arrival, you can wind down with a provided lunch and relax and take in the breathtaking views. There is an Irish bar and a great restaurant at Tranquil Park for dinner. 

These roads are some of the most beautiful you will find to ride however please make sure you have enough fitness to complete this ride.

We will be riding back to Brisbane Sunday morning and should be back around lunchtime. Sunday's ride will be about the same distance but considerably easier. We will descend the Blackall range into Peachester and then ride back to Brisbane behind the Glasshouse mountains and through Morayfield back to the shop by around lunchtime.
