Rainbow Beach to Noosa via Sand

I wanted to revisit the shipwreck called Cherry Venture which got stranded on the beach in 1973. I could not find it and thought it got washed back to the ocean with King Tide few months ago. Thanks to Google I later found out that the shipwreck was removed 3 years ago due to dangerous asbestos that got exposed. The operation took 6 weeks to complete at the cost of $570 000. Estimated 900 tons of rusty metal was sent to recycling. It was a great bike ride being the first sand experience apart from riding in snow in Europe. I very much recommend this trip to those of you wanting to take your off road or dual purpose bike on sand. Have a good time and stay upright.
