It was a perfect day for a ride from Linville to Blackbut to take part in the Bloomin’ Beautiful Blackbutt Festival to highlight the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
The 22km ride to Blackbutt was a gentle climb on easy terrain with some gully crossings to negotiate. After refuelling at Blackbutt Bakery we joined in with the parade through town before a much quicker downhill run back to Linville.
The ride back to Linville along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail was an absolute blast as we descended open plains and through black rock cuttings. The stunning scenery is dotted with clusters of ancient grass trees and the odd cow patty or two. The Bloomin’ Beautiful Blackout festival is on every year so if you get the chance, this is a must do ride!
