New bike tracks

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE walk­ing tracks on South Molle Is­land have now been up­graded to be able to be used for moun­tain bikes. Queens­land’s National Parks Min­is­ter Steve Dick­son said walk­ing trails lead­ing to four look­outs had been re­cently as­sessed by the Whit­sun­day Moun­tain Bike Club (WMBC) and Queens­land Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice (QPWS) for their suit­abil­ity as bike trails. “The track net­work was up­graded about two years ago to im­prove ac­cess for QPWS’s small main­te­nance ma­chin­ery, which also made it suit­able for moun­tain bikes,” Mr Dick­son said.
