Another popular ride around here is the River Loop, the river being the Brisbane River. Almost every morning of the week, folks get up and on their bikes to meet at a couple of spots in the city and then ride along the river (road or bikepath) for an hour or so, finishing the ride in one of the many coffee shops.
That's what I did this morning, a slow, easy ride. I rode with my partner and a friend, showing them one of the many ways of doing the loop. Yes, there are many ways of doing it, specially as you cross the river and head back to town riding through a few suburbs on the south side of the river.
