Cairns offers heaps of bike tracks for road cycling and mountain biking. It’s usually best to ride around town and the nearby suburbs during winter time but if you are not too bothered by the heat you can even train for the next ironman championship. The half ironman registration though is already closed in just about a week from opening. For mountain bike enthusiasts, Smithfield has different levels of difficulty and once I tried, I could say it was one hell of a ride. Considering that for one I am a woman and very inexperienced, I went to ride the easy track but that didn’t stop me from screaming every time there was a rise and fall and the fast downhill. The MTB world championship was held here last year and it was even more challenging because it rained.
