Logan Road - 8 Mile Plains. There is a set of lights where the Pacific Motorway exits and joins to Logan Road (Just south of the Hwy Overpass over Logan Road). On the west side of those trafic lights is a carpark area - meet in there.

Hope no confusion 09blab

Makes sense. Am at Holland Park West, so just a squirt down Logan Rd to get there.

Photo not loading Chris...... It does show some MTBers enjoying a nice cold ale .... cheers Geoff

Was reminded that I would never make it as a single speed rider as every time I mix beer with riding I end up with a huge headache. Might have had something to do with trying to chase down Nick on the Tooheys forest climb.

Great option when the bush is too wet - thanks for posting up Ezroller

Good turn out last night with 8 riders enjoying the mostly dry and super grippy conditions. We did a tour of the new trails in Daisy Hill/Cornubia – top night – thanks guys.

We’re heading out this Wednesday night for a Nebo ride. Meeting 7pm at the Gap Creek car park – allow 3 hours for the return trip. All welcome – post or pm if interested.

Count me in. I will ride over departing Underwood at about 5PM if anyone wants to add some extra K's.

Count me in, I might aim to join up around either Stones Corner or Southbank.

Should be a sensational night up and back, and the forecast is for clear skies so let the moon shine on.

Shaping up to be a epic night ride.... I'm riding in from Springwood so will try hook up with Floody. Those wanting a few more Ks meet at the Goodwill Bridge Southbank at 6pm then onto the Gap Creek carpark for 7pm.

Was a perfect night/morning for a big ride.... 7 starters made the return trip upto Nebo. We had a pit stop at Jolly's Lookout taking in the amazing views before heading back down to Gap Creek.

Troy that was Floody and me you spotted along Underwood Road. Made it home just after 2am with 120km/2000m on the legs. Could have done with a sleep in but the kids were only kind enough to allow me 3 hours sleep. The crazy things we do to get our bike fix!

I was outside playing with the cat and saw what a terific night it was with nearly full month. I had thought about coming up for the ride but when I saw Floody was with you - too fast for these old legs. Yup 120k & 2000 up 09surrender

Coaster, we met 4 of the riders at Gap Creek, and took our time going up. You would have done it easy.

Good to meet you Hauffy. The only machine I had was a deraillier. You and Chris did well on ths single speeds.

Thanks to Neil for doing the big commute, would have been a lonely ride home otherwise. Riding the deserted streets and bike paths at 1 AM with full moonlight was a fun way to end the night. Thanks EZRoller for organising the ride, and Chris, Nic and Anthony for the ride too.
