I have been a member of the BUGS (Bribie Island Bicycle Users Group) for a few years now and normally we go on a bike ride just for the fun of riding and enjoying mother nature, but today we took a bike ride with a difference. The theme was Geocaching for Beginners!
Unfortunately the rainy weather and overcast skies must have put off a lot of riders, but we started off with four people, amongst which one real beginner, so it was to be a fun morning after all.
As I was going through the geocaches around us yesterday, on line, I noticed one that was placed by a Canadian whose relatives were looking after the cache, and guess what? The relatives were the ones leading our little group and the first cache of the day was of course theirs: Here (4). Needless to say that we found it, and... without their help!

As we were going to make our way from Bellara down to Bongaree we stopped off at the big sign close to the bridge which greets all the Bribie visitors from far. The picture is again from Google Earth and alas taken before the sign was placed. I definitely need to get my camera in order.

As the weather was deteriorating from an overcast sky to actual showers, we decided to call it a day after our successful finds and we all stopped of at my place for a cuppa till the rain had passed. All in all I would say that we could repeat a bike ride like this to include the many other caches on Bribie we haven't searched for yet.
I will have another posting soon, because I have been able to add a few more caches to my name. :-) Till then.
