anyone interested in a train ride out to ipswich, riding around the velodrome for a bit then riding back? the velodrome has been re-surfaced in the last few years. It’s still a bit dodgy, but would be interesting.
total ride would be around 50ks (incl. east ipswich station to velodrome then back to CBD, but not including laps)
there’s a pretty good route on backroads either side of the highway…then either back to brisbane via corinda, or back to brisbane via the centenary Hwy bike path…
Another option: we could ride there and ride back?
i took the first saturday morning train ride there a few weeks back and OMG. the sight of carriage after carriage of absolute deadshits heading back to ippy after a night clubbing in brisbane was seriously appalling.
Ok… hang on… When did you last ride on it?
Because we just did the hell o’ the west… And included was a ride on that velodrome… and to say the least… it sucked dick… i mean… cracks, weeds, you name it. Brett did a good job pulling the weeds out, but it’s still a piece of shit.
there’s no point heading out there. Instead you should pay $5-$10 each and hire the one in Brisbane.
It’ll be a hard enough ride out there from the city anyway.
Hi guy, don’t want to spoil your plan but what about the nerang velodrome?
The surface is great(no weeds or cracks) its close to the train and water and the nerang-a-tangs on the train down from Brissy aren’t that bad either
