Little gem in the mountains

One of the wonderful things with cycling is all the places it takes me that would never have seen before. At the top of Mt Nebo is Cafe Boombana tucked away a little off the road. This is a big call, but for me, it is one of the best coffee's to be found in Brisbane. Also as 'Electric Panda' mentioned on numerous occasions, the view is worth the ride. So there is your photo EP.

There are many cycling routes to get you to the cafe. All of which are highly rated rides. Both xc & road. It is easy to get over 2000 metres of climbing in less than 80kms. So it is a great training area too.



The video shows the last bit of a brake smoking decent.

Thanks dude :o)) Need a spare pair of legs too. You may not be aware, Your awesome effort climbing Eastern Escarpment is something I keep in mind as an item of motivation for my cycling.

Back at you Bros! To see how far you've come on a bike is an inspiration.
Behind you all the way at Croc Man- I know you'll go well, rip their bloody legs off. Good luck
