Mareeba to Atherton
Closer to heaven than where you come from
The Atherton T...
The Gap to Mt Glorious is a great weekend road ride which explores the beautiful rainforest views not too far from Brisbane.
Starting on the corner of Settlement Road and Waterworks Road, wind your way through the several long and challenging climbs and sweeping descents before heading north for the tough Mount Glorious climb or west for the easier Mount Nebo ascent. This is definitely not a ride for the inexperienced! Expect many inclines, as of course, it is a mountain!

THINGS TO DO: If your legs will let you, go for a walk in D’Aguilar National Park and enjoy a tranquil walk through the rainforest.
BIKE SHOP: You’re going to have to head back into The Gap, towards Ashgrove to find Ashgrove Cycles.
