Nice morning for it. Started with a good coffee at the Healthy Habits Cafe and took the Beaudesert - Nerang Road (not bad in the morning but a bit scary on my way back). Had a go at HR drive (what a son of a...beast that is), turned around at Mt Tambourine and back down HR. From Canungra, Lemington Nat. Park Road all the way...
Great, fast climb! I was lucky with the traffic. A dozen cars and only one bus, which waited in one of the narrow parts. Lots of wildlife and a very diverse landscape. And the rain forest... absolutely fantastic!
Yes, it poured down as I started the descent so I took refuge at the Alpaca Farm. Nice couple running it, cyclists as well and responsible for putting the planks on the cattle grids. Great work!
Thanks for all the info here. I can say O'Reilly's is now noted as one of my favourites!
