I rode along the BVRT with a couple of family members, starting at Wulkuraka and finishing at Esk (approx 67km). Great riding of reasonably groomed tracks. A mixture of compacted dirt, and some gravel. To say this is a stunning ride would be an understatement!...More

What an asset this is to all of us bike riders - and particularly the small towns along the trail. The trail is in very good condition, it is well signposted and maintained. Thoroughly recommend this one. Awesome.

It's the second time I've done an End to End on the trail. Now with the whole trail open it was great to get back. I think it becomes addictive. It is a "must do" for a rider of bike or horse, or hiker/walker. Plenty...More

Rode from Yarraman to Wukurakka over 4 days with a great group of mates. Various councils have different ways of looking after the track. Surprisingly it made the Trail more interesting for me. It's a wonderful ride through small towns with plenty of good coffee...More

We cycled the 160kms over four nights . The trail varies in surfaces over the distance but I do suggest a mountain bike with suspension for a comfortable ride . Lots of small towns to stop in for accomodation and refreshments. The old railway bridges...More

Agree with Mark - if you check out the FB page BrisbaneValleyRailTrailUsersAssociation, they will be able to offer tips. Paul Heymans who operates the page is a very passionate supporter of the BVRT.
