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!
