Paracyclist rides high
A Tolga cyclist competing in the 2016 Paralympic Games has described his trip to Rio as the “experience of a lifetime.”
David Edwards has come a long way from riding his bike around the Tablelands, today competing against some of the best athletes in the world.
The 23-year-old is part of the cycling team at the games, acting as a sighted pilot for seven-time paralympian Kieran Modra in the tandem cycling events for athletes with a vision impairment.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the Atherton Tablelands as a place to live, a place to visit and especially as a place for cyclists,” Edwards said.
