The Gravel Cartel

"Gravel & Gourmet" Long Weekend

Past Event


Chef Johnny Walker will be joining us for the entire trip preparing all meals which are included in the price of the trip. Groupset Coffee will be bringing their 4WD Coffee vehicle which will provide coffees on site at Green Hills House and during the rides.

Join us in Blackbutt, Queensland for our "Gravel & Gourmet" long weekend at Green Hills House.

Ride the stunning Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and quiet local gravel roads of the beautiful South Burnett region of Queensland which is fast becoming an off-road cycling mecca. Enjoy fresh local produce and fine Queensland wines as you sit around the fire after a day on the trail with old friends and new. 

You will get to spend 2 nights in the historic Green Hills House with its rustic boutique-style accommodation set on 4 acres and located right on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Green Hills House is the epitome of a slice of country living at its very best.

When you're not riding you'll be enjoying all that Green Hills House has to offer. There's no lengthy vehicle transfers to take up your time it's all right here for off in the pool, spend some down time on the day bed, have a hit of tennis on the clay court, sit by the fire pit or just relax with a good book in the stunning common living area. 

Together we will do 3 rides combining the Rail Trail and local gravel roads and beautiful forestry trails supported by the our experienced ride leaders, soigneur and dedicated support vehicle. 

"Gravel & Gourmet" is a cycling experience like no other.
