Curtis Island Social MTB Ride 2020

We headed over to Curtis Island on Sunday 19th January 2020, joining a contingent of 23 mountain bikers to explore the gravel up to Joey Lees, the flat pristine beach at Turtle Street, plus the newly built single-track green trails around Connor Bluff.

It was an epic 51 kilometre adventure on gravel, loose sand, beaches, vine-strewn undergrowth, and single-track mountain bike trails.

For this adventure, I rode my 2020 Ridley Sablo XO1, which is quickly becoming the favourite bike I’ve ever owned, but don’t tell the others. 😁

The day’s outing was organised by Gladstone Mountain Bike Club and we eagerly tagged along. This was the second Curtis Island social ride I’ve attended with the club, the last one being back in April 2019 when it was a lot cooler.

It was great revisiting Curtis Island and taking the new coastal tracks and trails instead of the gravel roads. I look forward to heading over there again, after a bit more rain and maybe in winter instead of the height of summer 🙂

As well as the above video, there’s also another one of the Goat Head to Connor Bluff trail in its full unedited glory – definitely worth a watch – called 10 Minute Trails – Goat Head to Connor Bluff.
