Top of the Wall

Such a feelin’s comin’ over me

There is wonder in most every thing I see

Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes

And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

Did you ever have a melody set on repeat mode inside your head during a ride?

For us The Carpenters’ Top of the World was that song and it couldn’t have been more fitting for this year’s Rapha Gentlemen’s Race. Not only did we have the pleasure of showcasing the best of our backyard in the Brisbane Ranges, mother nature was on her best behaviour on this Autumn day. What a perfect setting to catch up with mates and meet a few new friends along the way.

A big thanks to Rapha for giving us the pleasure of showing off the forgotten roads and an excellent excuse to lay back for a beer or two to wash down the tacos amongst the friends.

We hope you enjoyed the route and if you ever need a tour guide to get you to the infamous “Wall”, please do drop us a line. Until then, ride your own race and ride awesome.
