Nice local roads – Federal to Clunes

More back roads which you need to look at my map to work out if not a local. From the town of Federal T junction turn right if riding the Federal road otherwise ride straight on if you have come over Coolamon scenic drive, both are good routes. Lots of […]

Nice local roads – Obi Obi

Obi Obi. That’s Kenilworth to Mapelton not some Star Wars character.  If you have ridden Maleny to Kenilworth then you likely will ride this next as part of the loop. There is some open road then a steep climb that has divided road which is a lot of fun. The […]

This is a nice little ride but ends in gravel so I only visited a few times preferring to link roads together. Starts off quite open and flowing taking you through some nice countryside, then after about 30 k you have this nice little range to climb and some views […]

Nice local roads – Kenilworth

West from Maleny is another nice ride down the range then over to Conondale then on up to Kenilworth. There are cafes and a pub there and this makes a good destination for a Sunday ride. It tended to get hot there and anywhere west of the hills so I […]

Nice local roads – Mt Mee

Before I left Brisbane I had stopped riding this road and the north side in general.  It is a nice ride but I found it best left for a weekday. On the weekend it always attracted heavy handed police and the occasion angry driver who hated riders. But I shall […]
