Woolwash Lagoon Social Ride

On this first episode of Come Ride With Me, we hit the back roads to Woolwash Lagoon and Midgee, heading out along the old Bruce Highway.

I’m road testing the new Go Pro Hero 8 mounted under-bar on my Giant Defy for this ride and I’m quite impressed with the results.

Join our crew of 7 (we started with 11 riders – no idea where they disappeared to) on this 45 kilometre social ride, hosted by local cycling group Cycle 4 Life Rockhampton.

We manage to cram 2 hours of riding into 17 minutes to keep things popping along, while we discuss the issues of the day such as the drought, dodgy politicians, whether cattle are racist, and how many bodies might be buried in the mud at the bottom of the lagoon. It’s hard hitting stuff.

It’s a bit of a long video but the return trip through Rockhampton City was just too pretty to cut so I kept it. 🙂

About Woolwash Lagoon. The lagoons are located on Port Curtis Road which used to be the Bruce Highway before it was re-routed in the 1960/70s. The road is pretty neglected nowadays due to lack of use and going underwater with each major flood, but is still used a lot by cyclists for short out-and-back rides as well as faster athletes using it as part of the Gracemere Angle training loop.

Due to the low traffic, it’s also a popular training group for parents to take their L-plater kids to practice for getting their licence 🙂
