Sunday 9 June 2024.

Meet 0800 hours – BP Service Station northbound M1 Morayfield.

Rider briefing - 0815 hours.

Departure - 0830 hours, fully fuelled.

The led ride will travel a short distance north to Caboolture and then depart the M1.

A little piece of history - Before the M1 was built north from Bald Hills to the Caloundra Road turnoff, before the Steve Irwin Way formed part of the old Bruce Highway, the road north from Caboolture was Gympie Road. Web - https://blog.neilennis.com/index.php/old-gympie-road/

This led ride will follow old Gympie Road north from Caboolture, past the glorious Glass House Mountains, agricultural land and acreage estates all the way through to Landsborough. The ride will then continue north through the hills overlooking Ewen Maddock Dam, to the Mooloolah Valley and eventually re-join the M1 at Palmview.

The ride will again travel for only a short distance north on the M1 and exit the M1 at Bli Bli Road, Nambour.

The ride will continue along the twisting roads of the hinterland through the heart of Yandina town, Eerwah Vale and Belli Park to the morning tea stop at the ‘Hub at the Ridge’ cafe, 8 Jubilee Road, Carters Ridge. Ph # 54479326. FB - https://www.facebook.com/hubattheridge/

After the morning tea stop the ride will continue along country roads through Kandanga, Gilldora, Long Flat, Pie Creek, Glastonbury and Widgee prior to entering onto the Wide Bay Highway for the short run west to Kilkivan for lunch at the Kilkivan Hotel, 19 Bligh Street, Kilkivan at approximately 1230 hours. Ph # 0447 872 028. The hotel is very popular with motorcyclists, other travellers and locals. FB - https://www.facebook.com/thekilkivanhotel/
