Brisbane Valley Rail Trail - Moore to Linville

Stopped at Linville for the night and for a ride on the next to last section of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail Linville to Moore and back just 15km return and except for the creek crossings, where the rail bridges have been removed, was quite an easy ride.

Had a few beers in the Linville pub, a typical Queenslander, with lining boards only on the inside of the frame.  Love these old pubs!

Sunday rode the other way towards Blackbutt and had gone several kms before I realized I was on a steady uphill gradient.  Climbed about 100m in 6km so made for an effortless ride back home.  The overall length of this section to Blackbutt is 22km but I only did 6km before returning.

A nice ride would be to set up camp in Linville and then have the bikes freighted to Blackbutt and ride back. Probably mostly downhill the trail weaving through valleys with no roads or cars just cows and magnificent views.
