By Bicycle

Did you know?

  • Taking your bike on the train is free.
  • You can take your bike on any suburban network train (although there are some peak hour restrictions).
  • Cycling on footpaths is permitted in Queensland.
  • The same rules and responsibilities of shared pathway use apply when on a footpath.

 

Take yourself plus bicycle on the train to Beerwah, Beerburrum or Caboolture stations. Click here for Timetable and fares.
Then, get on your bike and ride to Woodford. The shortest and safest route is from Beerburrum station (although much of it is on gravel roads). Ride with friends and enjoy the stunning scenery along the way.
Full details and route descriptions can be found on the Cycle to Woodford Guide/Map. Click here for a downloadable version (PDF 694k).

In partnership with Epic Cycles in Brisbane, cyclists attending the festival will have access to:

  • A designated camping area - Cyclist Camping – see Map 2 in the Festival Programme for location.
  • A marquee providing secure undercover bicycle parking, mechanical support and an area to socialise.
  • A free luggage transport option for cyclists who have a Festival Season Ticket, but are not set up for bicycle touring.

 

The free luggage pick-up service operates from Epic Cycles - Baroona Road, Paddington in Brisbane. Luggage left at drop-off points before Christmas is delivered to Cyclist Camping and available by Boxing Day, then returned to the drop-off points after January 2. More details and bookings – absolutely essential – are available from Epic Cycles, phone 3368 2324.

Please ride safely...

  • Be visible. Wear bright colours & use safety flags on trailers.
  • Queensland summers can be hot. Wear sun-safe riding gear, sunscreen and drink plenty. Don’t become dehydrated. Ride in the cooler times of the day.
  • Be road aware. Allow room for speeding traffic to pass safely. Move on to the verge if necessary.
  • Give way to pedestrians and other users.
  • Keep to the left of the road and overtake on the right.
  • Sound the bell when approaching the back of another cyclist or pedestrian before passing on the right - have a bell fitted to your bike (this is required by law).
  • Be mindful of pedestrians at all times and adjust speed according to their surroundings (pedestrian volume, presence of children or elderly people, etc).
  • Limit the use of headphones and mobile phones as they reduce your awareness.
  • Consider using a bicycle mirror.
  • Carry tools for repairs, flat tyres etc.
  • Know your route. A missed turn can be a hot mistake.
