REDLANDS CYCLING OPTIONS
For those wanting to roam farther from home base, the Redlands area, our close-by neighbouring city, provides a great variety of possible riding options. Some of these options, such as cycling to Wellington Point and walking out to the exposed King Island at low tide, can be started and finished from home base, or, alternatively, a one-way trip could be arranged so that more time could be spent exploring the local area.
This trip lends itself very well to using the local train service, as home base is five minutes’ walk from the nearest station, and many of the Redlands rides can start and end at Cleveland Station. The Redlands Cycle Paths
maps show a number of possibilities for rides in this area, all of which contain spectacular bush and/or bay scenery along the way.
Another Redlands cycle option is a visit to the
Sirromet Winery – one of Queensland’s largest and best-known wineries, and a winner of a number of overseas and national awards in recent times.
conducts wine tastings, serves lunch and dinner, and has cellar door sales.
Depending on where you leave from (e.g. from home base or from Cleveland or Ormiston railway stations), and when you commence with major tourist destinations such as your trip to Sirromet, it could be a one-way (pick up at end of day), or two-way trip (cycle both ways – about 60 kilometres).
