Riders tackle the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail experience

BIKE riders will be exploring the northern end of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail on Saturday.

They will experience the 50 kilometre rail trail between Yarraman and Moore in a bike ride suitable for cyclists of all abilities.

The annual event organised by the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Users Association is part of Bicycle Queensland's 2018 Bike Week.

Cyclists will arrive in Moore by 7.30am where they will travel by a coach and semi-trailer with their bikes to Yarraman.

Participating cyclists will explore the open skies and big paddocks between Yarraman and Blackbutt, before stopping at the famous Blackbutt Bakery for a pie.

They will continue on down the range for the 22 kilometres through the Benarkin Forest, taking in the sights, and the sounds of the bell birds.

The group then plans to stop in Linville for a drink at the pub or coffee shop, before following the Brisbane River at their own leisurely pace back to their vehicles in Moore.

The ride will run from 7am until roughly 2pm on Saturday May 5 and will be fully supported with first aiders, ride marshals and sag wagons, in the case of any problems along the ride.

The rail trail is more suitable for hybrids, mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes, since the track is a bit rough along the rail trail between Yarraman and Moore.

The cost of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Experience ride is $35 and bookings can be made via eventbrite.com.au.
