Mt Coot-tha Bike Trip
May 8, 2009 at 03:52AM Sport Australia Brisbane QueenslandOn Sunday I went for a bike ride from my home in downtown Brisbane to Mount Coot-tha, a mountain on the edge of Brisbane, about 5km from the downtown area.
Near the end of the circuit around Mount Coot-tha was the lookout point. Besides featuring a great view of downtown Brisbane as you can see, it also featured ice cream, which ended up being a very important part of the bike ride. While at the lookout, I parked my bike right next to the bus stop for the bus that went from the lookout at the top of the mountain to the street corner 150m from my home in Spring Hill.
I will probably cycle out to Mount Coot-tha again when I'm looking for a good bicycle workout. I might even try a run around the road there when I'm up for a little more distance. It's almost exactly a 10km loop, I just have to get out there and back, and I'm sure the bike ride home will be a bit harder after running 10km of hills.
