October Southside Run to Rathdowney and Roadvale

posted Oct 9, 2019, 12:00 AM by Peter Triggell
Greetings everyone

It's almost been a couple of months since you had an excuse to arc up the 7s and go for a drive. Apart from those of you who run the cop gauntlet up to Mt Glorious every Tuesday. On Sunday 20 October I propose we take a pleasant drive not too long and not too short this is just the right length south of town to Rathdowney and on to the Roadvale pub for a bit of nosebag. This will be the last formal run prior to the end of year, of course not discounting the Xmas stroll to Spicers.

Arrangements are as follows:

Rendezvous point - McDonalds carpark city side of the Browns Plain Rd intersection on your left. Take the Browns Plain Rd off ramp before the intersection, turn left into Browns Plains Rd and then first left again into the Maccas car park. Meet in the Maccas car park. Maccas make an acceptable coffee I am advised (but wouldn't know because I am a coffee snob). Meet there at 09h30 for a 10h00 departure.

We will travel south along the Mt Lindsay Hwy and arrive at Beaudesert at approximately 10h40 where we will meet any members joining us from the Gold Coast. We will recommence our journey about 10h50. 

We will then travel from Beaudesert south to Rathdowney and then turn right on to the Boonah Rathdowney Rd (route 93) through Boonah, turning left onto Roadvale Rd approx 2 kms north of the Beaudesert Boonah Rd. 

The lunch destination is the Roadvale Pub approx 2 km off the Ipswich Boonah Rd. The Pub has a range of meals ranging from cheap pub meals to slightly more exy fancy dishes, Italian food seems to be a signature slant at this refurbished establishment. The menu may be found through the miracles of modern technology that occasionally works here:

I will book the Pub but would you please let me have your expressions of interest in attending asap so I can actually give them numbers for the tables. 

The run home will be via the Ippy Boonah Rd, any GC crew via the Beaudesert Boonah Rd.

Look forward to seeing you there.
