|Activity Title:||Brisbane Valley Rail Trail – Cycling with o/night camping at Moore|
|Overview:||Now the longest rail trail in Australia, the 161 km Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT) follows the disused Brisbane Valley rail line that commenced construction at Wulkuraka near Ipswich in 1884 and was completed at Yarraman in 1913. The BVRT winds its way up the Brisbane valley, traversing farmland, forests, picturesque rural settings and country towns. Being on the old railway line, the BVRT provides an off-road climb up the valley for day trippers, overnight camping or longer-term adventures.
· Yarraman to Moore (50 km)
· Camp overnight
· Moore to Toogoolawah (30 km) (or Esk (+19 km) depending on group)
· North to South is more down than up.

On Sunday, 10 March, 14 boys and 2 parents ventured to Hidden Vale Adventure Park to experience the mountain bike trails on offer. The day was overcast, although it did become hot as the day progressed. Happy Gilmore, 007, Dodgem, Trailer Trash and Plane Sailing (to name some of the trails ridden) provided for flowy riding and all the boys were able to meet the challenges of the park, with each riding within their capabilities. Trailer Trash was especially popular with a number of boys taking the opportunity for multiple runs.
