1 day or 2 day ride

as someone who is new to ADV riding i am wondering what rides are preferred 1 day or 2 day (weekend)??

i am happy to ride solo (350km today exploring some dirt roads) but also happy to put up rides for others to join. getting out of the brisbane area and off the bitumen for a couple of days would be good as well with a camp or a pub stay.

so 1 day rides or 2 day rides (maybe do a 2 day ride every couple of months).

I like 2 day rides with a pub stay overnight usually, just hard to do these too often with young kids!

It might sound a bit harsh, but heres the truth!
You are a noob and need to build up some ADV cred first
Same thing happened to me when I first joined, couldnt get a taker for any ride I put up!
I suggest you join in a few other rides with established dudes on ADV, let people get to know you a bit, and guys joining YOUR rides will come,if your're not a total tool or something!
Stick with it,it'll happen

thanks for the feed back, its not that important it's only bike riding i think there were 8 riders on the first good ride i put up a couple of weeks ago.

i don't mind putting in the effort to plan a ride as a lot of people are time poor with work and family, but in the end i am just happy to go for a ride

Too bloomin right mate!!
That's what it's all about ....Ridin 2 wheels...yeah!

I rekon there is lots to see in one day around seq especially if you've got some good spotties you don't mind the ride back home after sunset.
Only made it to Jimna the other day/night , that took 9 hrs coulda been dble , even triple that.

1's good 2 is also good.

Cheers G2

Couple of years ago there where rides being organized every weekend around SEQ on ADV. Be good to see some active participation again. I commend you Allan. Should be more of it,

They still get organized,but unfortunately it has gone underground.
Was talking to someone the other day about how new blokes would meet other riders when the rides are kept quiet.
Good on you allan11 for giving it a go ,don't give up.Hope to get on one of your rides in the future.Just watch out for the knockers they must be on there way ....or sleeping

Boonah to Tenterfield and then home via Stanthorpe is a nice ride...

Beaudesert to jackadgery and home is a bit of a shorter 2 day ride..

Boonah to Drake and home is a good 1 dayer

Or Mt Mee up to Kilcoy for lunch then over Mt Kilcoy and back to Dayboro is also not bad

Those are my 3 base rides I do when I can

The more days the merrier

5 days is the sweet spot for me (with the time I have available)

being at deception bay for me back to base 1 day rides means if i want to go West it is either north or south around or over the range.

had good solo 350km ride yesterday and home by lunch, mostly dirt, through gates, easement roads, creek crossings, went into a couple of properties and spoke to the owners as it looked (on google earth) like their driveway went up and through a valley (8kms) across to the main dirt road.

people are happy to point you in the right direction as long as you are doing the right thing. one 80 year old bloke who was getting his cows off the road even pulled out this old black and white map (might have been from cobb and co days).
