The Alpes Edition of AndyCamp started with a 120k ride from Yandina through Kenilworth, Brooloo, Imbil, Belli, Cooroy and back to Yandina. Check the bikely map and elevation.
There was lots of climbing, most significantly in the stretch just before Cooroy. We rode along the ridge of a range that just kept going up! The views were, if not spectacular, quite pleasant and certainly beats most of the rides around the Brisbane 'burbs!
Although I felt pretty good through most of the ride, I had this little voice in the back of my head wondering how on earth I was going to back this up for the next two days...? But I concentrated on the task at hand and just kept riding.
One day down, two to go...
