PLEASE NOTE LATER START TIME MONDAY September 21 is 9 am
Bill's first ride, but it's a beauty, not to be missed.
Venue: Caboolture, Hayes St Behind the Caboolture Railway Station on the Eastern side, park next to railways overflow car park.
Ideal to travel there by train, the last carriage always has good storage space for bikes.
THE RIDE: Caboolture to Wamuran RAIL TRAIL This railway was closed in 1964, it ran from Caboolture to Kilcoy. It was recently upgraded as a very good Rail Trail at great expense by the Council and is full sealed. This ride while being reasonably short at around 25K is suitable for fast riders who want to 'go for it' and equally suitable for a more leisurely pace for those who want to take in the Country side, both will be catered for.
Coffee at Wamuran, follow Bill to the correct coffee shop.

Bike Paths .....Easy Riders
Most of you would be aware the Qld Transport and Main Roads Department (TMR) plans to spend nearly $7m on 1 km of a walking path, walkway, car parks etc. in Alexandra Headland (M2M)

Feedback is requested by 31 July.

The M2M path is attracting a lot of interest (many for or against). There was a protest 3 weeks ago with 1200 protesters - organised by Beach Matters
See https://www.facebook.com/search/top?q=beach%20matters

If you have thoughts on it, please consider responding. Details are below.

People have various opinions, but it would be great if you could make specific comments on the M2M proposal.

More generally you might like to suggest TMR and
Sunshine Coast Council need to spend more money on bike paths, to upgrade old paths, to label paths better, make present ones wider and safer, develop more links between present paths etc.
