Cycle Qld 2011 – Fashions in the field

Well, what a wonderful Cycle Queensland.  Some of the best and most scenic touring I have ever done as well as a wonderful time with friends.  I’ll do another post about the actual tour but this post is going to be a gratuitous photo post on some of the clothes we wore on CQ.

We certainly had a lot of fun making/selecting the outfits and buying some additional pieces along the way.  The op shop at Killarney was a real stand out as it was one of the best stocked and organised ones I had ever been in.

The outfits attracted a lot of attention and hopefully a few new readers – hello to you out there!  Thanks to everyone on CQ who commented or said hello because of what we were wearing.  It was a real conversation starter and certainly made our trip.  We love talking to everyone!  Also a special mention to those who are now reconsidering what you can wear on the bike.  As I’m sure you can see below, pretty much anything is suitable!
