Bush and Beach Epic in QLD, Australia

Ground Effect customer Neil Ennis and his mates recently completed a 700km trip through the bush and beaches of South East Queensland.

Neil only realised duing the second half of the trip that ALL of the team had chosen to wear Ground Effect tops. He sent us his journey in pictures, and the link to his trip blog.

The brief of the trip was to avoid traffic, so they started at Beerburrum, a small town with lots of tracks leading off into the forests of the Glasshouse Mountains, did a big loop up to Maryborough, then finished at Ningi, near Bribie Island. To save weight they stayed at pubs, motels and caravan parks - no need to carry camping gear on the bikes.

Have a gander of the photo gallery below, and for a full trip report read Neil's blog (Part 1 & Part 2).

As a british roadie that all looks incredibly arduous and scary – especially the swampy pics (snakes? spiders? other things?), so chapeau. Those fat tyres look like hard work on tarmac, just to add to the challenge….. If the £ ever recovers I’ll be buying your gear again for sure.

I would like to commend Neil and his four good friends on their 700 km Bush and Beach Epic. Simply and effectively documented with photographs and succinct, pithy text with humour. On a particularly difficult stage on Fraser Is. (Day 6), Neil asks “I wonder if anyone else hears these strange voices?” to which I, as a rider of several multi-week epics, can re-assure Neil that yes, indeed, most riders do at some stage. Again, well done to all involved – obviously a well planned and executed ride. Thank you for the inspiration.
