The nice folk at Yarraman Caravan Park asked me to make a map of the walk / horse / cycle trails which are signposted around the town.
Not long ago a cafe proprietor on the BVRT mentioned to me that she had nothing informative to give or sell to BVRT users. I promised to try to come up with something, and when we had finished preparing the Fifth Edition of Where to Mountain Bike in SEQ I realised this was a golden opportunity to piggyback the print run. Gillian quickly packaged up the Somerset chapter into a 12 page Guide to the BVRT and it is now in stock with a remarkable 20+ retailers in the Brisbane Valley.
Just before Christmas we received a shipment of our latest publication – the Fifth Edition of Where to Mountain Bike in South East Queensland. The Fourth Edition sold 8,000 copies and previous editions sold around 5,000 making this a local bestseller. The book is now available online at www.organisedgrime.com.au and at 80+ shops – see www.organisedgrime.com.au/stockists.php
Glen Rock State Forest has a little-used bushwalk and also a cycling / horse-riding trail along the creek to the Top Yards.
The map I drew for the Oxley Creek Common birdwatching brochure; it’s a mecca for birdwatching, a nice walk and a great ride:
A small area of bushland opposite the Kokoda Barracks main entrance. I made this map for the Family Bushwalks book but it didn’t make the cut.
Another map which didn’t quite make it into our Family Bushwalks book. My son rides this track to school on his MTB.
Numinbah Forest lies between the Numinbah and Little Nerang Valleys in the Gold Coast Hinterland; it is the venue of many organised walks each year. There is limited scope for mountain biking because it is generally steep and cycling is not permitted on many trails. Waterfall Creek is a relatively gentle ride.
