Went to the ride park at kenilworth last year. It was pretty good then and has apparently been improved since. Well worth a look, 2 mx tracks with jumps that are vintage friendly, a couple of peewee tracks. Open midweek, and I think you can camp there now

We have a new complex opening near Beaudesert soon. It is a govt. backed thing call Wyarralong and is to have camping and riding for families  No idea when it will be open though

I rode Stanmore mx track today and took my Franken. Very user and vintage friendly. Well groomed and the new format is spot on. Saturday is kids,juniors, women and vets(over 40). The women rode with the vets so there was three sessions. So the track is at it's best, you don't have to wait long ( I did 5 sessions and was out of there just after 1pm) and it's not crowded.

The new practice format is good, they alternate it each week so next weekend will be vets, juniors etc on Sunday.

Thanks for the replies Reedycreeks 5mins from my place so I'll go there I was looking for a big flat area but that will do.
I mostly trail ride (including Dalby/ ADBA rides) and am a bit nervous about doing a 60k loop after a full rebuild it would end up on the back of the sweep truck ;D

There,s a new place just opened west of Cunninghams Gap but before Bestbrook.
600 acres of mountains and the owner appears to be a nice guy. :)
Sign on the Highway. Property on both sides of the Highway. 30secs from turn off to camp sites.

Have had a run to Manar Park, some good riding in a very quiet environment away from the ratrace and the knobjockeys. Operators are very laid back as long as you follow the rules. A lot of the transport tracks are shared with 4 x 4s but are wide enough for all. All bike tracks are directional and arrowed. There are some nasty hills down by the river if you are keen on destroying a car or bike attempting a trip to the top for a better view. Lots of rocks and mud in Winter. Some of the tracks are so difficult to traverse that they use a log skidder for track maintenance. Take plenty of fuel and the necessary spares, although they do carry some common spares at the Park.

Hi looking for some where to ride on the gold coast. Im on the northern end near wet'n'wild. Does anyone know of any spots? Also Looking for people to go ride with. Riding solo gets boring pretty quick. Thanks.

Im keen to ride Richie and live in Molendinar, however I don’t know of any good spots. When I’m testing out my bike I take it to an unused industrial lot at Gaven.
