Gold Coast

By jsmith - Posted on 13 April 2014

We are off to the Gold Coast for the second week of the holidays.
Does anyone know of any good rides up that way????



There are some great rides up there.
My three favorite are,
1. Surfers to Kirra and back - flat track and safe , head down hedges Ave southbound to Miami, then along esplanade to Burleigh. Then on g c highway over tallabudgera Creek, then turn right into palm beach. South through suburb over currumbin Creek then turn left.through tugan to Kirra. ( 70 km if starting from southport)
2. Currumin valley ( the most beautiful ride in australia) Same as above accept turn right after crossing currumbin Creek and stay on road to head of valley past rock pools and camp eden, stopping in national park head of valley before returning ( 80 km if starting from southport)
3. Numinbah valley loop - the big one and locals favorite.(140km) From southport head west to nerang, join nerang-murwulimbah rd - wonderful ride through Numinbah valley past Hinze dam and natural arch once you climb to border gate look down into the Mt warning basin. Descent carefully to chillingham and stop for a coffee before riding through murwullimbah and turning left to tomowin back over the range and descend into currumbin valley before heading back up the coast.

Legend - I will try at least 2 of them - the long one if I get a leave pass!!
