Ride the Range
Ride the Range starts as the sun is rising over the Great Dividing Range. Cyclists start the challenge at Picnic Point Toowoomba, with the option of the full 112km ride, a slightly less challenging 85km, or a gentle 50km. The descent offers stunning views over the countryside as you cycle down along Flagstone Creek Road. View the spectacular patchwork of the Lockyer valley before the non-relenting challenge of the ascent back to Picnic Point in Toowoomba. The 50km ride finishes at Lake Apex Gatton, where riders are met by a bus which brings you and your bike back to Picnic Point. 29 March 2015
