520k bicycle tour to fundraise for CAFNEC

There's only just over a week to register for the FNQ Wilderness Bicycle Tour, if you want to receive the early bird discount.

Last year's event was a great success.

The tour runs from the Saturday 18th to Saturday 25th September.
Over eight days, this 520 km ride climbs through the World Heritage rainforest-covered mountains behind Cardwell, to Blencoe Falls, the Herbert River, Innot Hot Springs, Ravenshoe, Lake Tinaroo and through to Copperlode Dam, and back down to Cairns.

Half of the trip is is on sealed roads, and half on dirt roads, so you'll need a mountain bike or a touring bike with wider tyres.

The ride is a fundraising event for Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC), which will use monies raised to further their core objective, to protect and enhance the natural environment of far north Queensland, through conservation and ecological sustainability.

Entry fees:
$540.00 (up to 30 June 2010).
