We sat down with David and Josie Sheehan of Out There Cycling to chat about cycling, Somerset and the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
DESCRIBE OUT THERE CYCLING?
Out There Cycling is the perfect service for those wanting to adventure along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. Our service is a one stop shop for cyclists and includes bus shuttles so that visitors can ride the trail and get a lift back to their cars afterward. We also assist cyclists with bike maintenance and repairs, luggage transfers and bike hire. Out There Cycling also offers boutique tours, which is the perfect way to experience the beauty of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail under the guidance of true professionals.
WHAT MAKES YOUR PRODUCT UNIQUE?
Believe it or not, we are the only service provider of our kind along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. We’re passionate about cycling and are so excited to share the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail with our visitors. The trail is a cyclist’s dream come true, so we want to make it as easy as possible for visitors wanting to ride the trail. We can even collect visitors who are flying into Queensland from the airport, assist them by finding them accommodation and provide bike hire and shuttle the rider along the trail to make their stay complete.
WHO CAN ENJOY THE BRISBANE VALLEY RAIL TRAIL?
The great thing about the trail is that it’s so versatile. Whether you like bush walking, cycling, running, horse-riding or just want to take your dog for a walk, the trail is the perfect pathway to the great outdoors. We love the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and strongly believe that it’s there for everyone to enjoy. In the future we also hope to expand our services to cater for people with disabilities. Providing services that would help people with disabilities to enjoy the trail is a dream that we would like to become a reality.
WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT LIVING AND WORKING IN SOMERSET?
We love the great outdoors and Somerset really takes the cake when it comes to the landscape. The beautiful countryside of Somerset provides a stunning backdrop while riding along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.
WHY DO YOU LOVE SOMERSET?
It is relatively close to Brisbane, Toowoomba and Ipswich, yet still far enough away to experience an authentic rural lifestyle. Of course, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail is a major drawcard for us. The trail is a safe setting for riders and walkers to really enjoy the countryside and experience the local country hospitality of the towns as they pass through. We love Somerset and can’t wait to share its beauty with visitors from all over the world.
