      Testimonial from a local riding tribe, "Always love riding Bluewater to keelbottom, one of the nicest rides in Townsville region. I have done it around 100 times, no exaggeration as I have ride logs to prove. My wife, well she doesn’t log rides but rides up there at least 1-2 times a week, she would have ridden it more??? She loves it! Our kids now shuttle up to the top some Friday afternoons after school and they love it."
