A new cycle track

Now I know Richie Bates who is running for the city Division 5, is a mad cyclist. I don't know how mad, because some are a bit more extreme than others.

Bates has a load of medals and awards from the prime of his road and track cycling days, but nowadays does more coaching and sports administration. He's also a regular commentator on the radio for local sporting events.

Anyway, I spotted this video and thought that something like this around Cairns would be a great attraction, if it's done in harmony with our environment.

I know some local lads often take a rather obscure track off the side of the Copperload Road which looks rather frightening from the top.
