If you’re the type of person who loves to get outdoors and exercise, the Redlands Coast is the place to do it! The area has an extensive network of tracks and trails, ideal for a stroll, cycle or jog.
The Redland Plodders are a social group of runners and walkers who love making the most of their backyard! They’re spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which track to plod along. A favourite is the Eddie Santagiulana Way, which stretches from Cleveland’s Raby Bay Harbour through to Thornlands. The track spans for 8 kilometres and suits all fitness levels. It’s also a great place for a family walk or cycle.
On that note, if pedal power is more your form of exercise, there is no shortage of spots for a bike ride. Along Queens Esplanade in Wellington Point is a picturesque coastal track. It makes up only a fraction of what’s known as the “Moreton Bay Cycleway”, a network of tracks that connects over 150 kilometres of Brisbane coastline via cycleways. The Redlands Coast section of the track makes up nearly a third of this network, with around 47 kilometres of bikeway to explore.
Of course, no ride is complete without a spot to refuel — and that’s where V1 Cyclery comes in! The shop is a hub for cyclists, where you’ll find everything for servicing, sales and indeed, caffeine! First Coffee Co is a quaint hole-in-the-wall café, located in the front of V1 Cyclery. It’s the perfect spot to cool off and enjoy a chinwag after a ride.
Whatever your exercise of choice, there’s something for everyone on the Redlands Coast! And the best part is, no matter where you’re working up a sweat, there’s usually a beautiful view to keep you distracted from the pain!
