Hubby and I just returned to our accommodation after hiring bikes and riding the bike trail from Stanthorpe to Ballandean. John was so helpful in getting us set up with great quality gear. He also briefed us on what was open today and through some dialogue he recommended a slight variation to the route to fit in some places we wanted to see.
Scenery was just gorgeous and we saw so much wildlife! Around every corner there was always something else to admire. It was certainly a great way to get out of a busy city and really take in the country. Nothing better than that fresh air filling your lungs.
We loved that we stopped at wineries we probably wouldn’t have visited otherwise. So many gems and visiting on a weekday meant they weren’t too busy. Buying wine and leaving it for John to pick up before he picked us up at the end of the ride meant that we could really enjoy ourselves and take home lots to enjoy at home.
I don’t normally go on longer bike rides......I normally just ride my easy ride bike down to my local coffee shop on very flat paths. Having so many places to stop along the way made it so much easier than I thought it would be .... and the gel cover for the bike seat was also appreciated! There were a few inclines on our route but an easy decline always followed. We also choose to ride on some dirt roads which was lots of fun.
I certainly recommend hiking some bikes and going on your own adventure around this beautiful part of Australia. Great service, gorgeous scenery and amazing little venues to visit ... and all while doing something that’s so good for you!
