  • Details: We will be heading the West of the city to the Brisbane Ranges. Plenty of good MR2 roads out there, and this particular area tends to have very little traffic on a Sunday compared to roads to the East of the city. Also I have swapped the route around from last year to make it even more interesting. We will end up at the Little River Hotel pub for lunch, which is just a typical country pub. Afterwards that will mean only a short trip back to the city via the freeway — Ian Morrison.
