Was just thinking yesterday I'll probably sell my Electra Rat Rod 3sp as it never gets used these days anyway.

Bazz I use a mountain bike with a quiver Kaddy towing behind . Had this set up about the last 6 years - carried everything from 4-6 kneeboards to 10 foot SUPs . Do like that bike of Vanders though

The Townie is a great bike, but that trailer also looks like a good option and probabaly better if its windy.

Well anyone who's riding to the beach with a motorcycle and surfboard are plum out of luck. Actually anyone who wants to ride their motorcycle recreationally are also plum out of luck.
So its pedal power ya lazy bastards.
From the cops:
"The part I would draw your attention to, is paragraph 6 where is says "A person who resides in Queensland must not leave their principal place of residence except for, and only to the extent reasonably necessary to accomplish, the following permitted purposes:". The section then lists exemptions.The direction is very clear, you MUST stay in your principal place of residence, it does not allow recreational riding of motorcycles. The direction needs to be followed as it is the authority in this matter, not what is commented on news reports, facebook feeds or discussed on other social media platforms. I understand what you have said regarding comments in the media about exercise, but please remember the Premier recently said on the news that the Easter Bunny would be allowed into Queensland, so clearly not everything reported on media is true or accurate. Conversely, the CHO Direction is written, freely available, enforceable and is very clear. Again, at no point in the CHO direction does it permit recreational riding of a motorbike.I have legal advice indicating that as the direction currently stands, a motorbike is only to be utilised as a means of transport in order to give effect to one of the stated exceptions, that means you can use your motorbike to go and get food, medication or go to work. It does not give you permission or authority to use your motorbike as a recreational vehicle. There are no facilities within the Mt Glorious, Mt Nebo or Mt Coot-Tha areas that would currently meet a, "reasonably necessary to accomplish" getting food or medication, criteria. Those facilities are in other areas, in your neighbourhoods, shopping centres, etc, not in the mountains.Legal advice has indicated that the spirit and intent of the CHO Direction, is to keep people within their own neighbourhoods to slow the spread of the COVID19 virus. It is allowing physical exercise, but again that needs to be considered within your local area, not travelling on a motorbike through the mountains, and adding up all those extra unnecessary interactions like stopping for fuel. I understand there was previously a statement made by the health minister. For your information that statement was made prior to the current CHO Direction, which overrules the ministers statement.Also, from a policing point of view, our resources are stretched attending to other activities, including border control, and policing activities at airports and hotels, and the increase in policing services helping the wider community. It would appear a number of motorbike riders have taken this as "carte blanch" to ride in a non-law abiding manner within the mountain areas. This has the potential to increase traffic crashes which will stretch our already stretched resources, along with those of the Queensland Ambulance Service, the Queensland Fire and Rescue and hospitals and emergency health staff. Again, this is in direct contrast to the idea of the CHO Direction, which is designed to limit the impact the COVID19 virus has on Hospitals and emergency services.Remember the over arching reason for this restriction is to limit the spread of COVID19 virus, and as the advertising states, "We are all in this together". The selfish and reckless actions of individuals claiming their "need" to go motorbike riding is in direct contradiction to what is needed at this time. Perhaps this is a good time to sit back and reflect on what is really important to the whole community and not just your own selfish individual "wants".Please stay at home and stop riding your motorbikes in the mountains. Please do not make us issue Traffic Infringement Notices to you, to get the point across.I hope this clarifies matters for you.Mick STEVENS

I love mountain biking when there is no swell to surf, less than 15 - 20 knots to windsurf.
At 54.5 years I'm getting atrial fibrillation sometimes when riding steep terrain (steep up = steep downhill and fun). Earlier this year it (afib) happened one time with bigger group - but less effort and result was riding an electric mountain bike which was awesome although still great fun riding downhill ?????.
Keep safe
