Follow the Logan Road

June 9th, 2011

Want some advice on cycling through Brisbane? Simple. Don’t. Go around. Visit Melbourne instead. Get your legs waxed. Anything but. Or maybe I was unlucky with my timing. My visit coinciding with a redneck convention in town. Knuckle-draggers aplenty. If you really must take the foolhardy path, follow the Logan Road.

I’d Niall to thank for the suggestion. And copious maps showing every twist and turn. Soon finding the road in the very heart of the city. My escape route south towards the Gold Coast. Slowed only by my own caution. Keeping my enthusiasm for turning the pedals in check, lest I wander off course and get quite lost. And a few roadworks to contend with.

Later stumbling across the V1 cycle route that seem to make use of the Logan Road and the subsequent M1 motorway service ways that run parallel. From what I could make out, right out to Surfers Paradise on the coast south of the city.
