Description:

From the message board:

Jeff Taylor and I are going for a bike ride up the Sunshine Coast after classes are done, and we're looking for keen cyclists to join us for some leisurely pedalling, camping, sight-seeing, and flower-smelling. Since my training regime has consisted entirely of ten minute bike rides to school, we're going to be travelling bum-friendly distances, and will probably even have a day off the bikes to do a hike. For those of you who have just seen Sufferfest 2, this is going to be absolutely nothing like that. Although if we get to see a puppy, that would be sweet.

This trip requires no previous cycle touring experience, although you do need a bike with a rack, camping/cooking stuff, and a can-do attitude. If you have panniers to carry your stuff in, that would be ideal, but if you don't have any let me know and we'll try to find a set for you. I won't let you wear a backpack full of camping gear. I just won't, so don't ask.

I'm setting the group size limit at 10 for now, but if we have some cycle-experienced folks who are willing to join and help fix the odd flat tire, we can have a few more.

Post to this thread or send me an email if you have specific comment/concerns.
