Tourist keen on bike tour
Taken from an article in the Fiji Times. An Australian who cycled around Viti Levu wants to develop mountain biking because of the sights and landscape. Chirotherapist Leigh Harris from Queensland believes mountain biking in Fiji could be a major sporting event if given suppose from organizations. Mr Harris swam through floodwater and struggled up rough terrain helped by three horsemen during his ride around the island. Mr Harris arrived on December 7 and spent a few days acclimatizing in Nadi. After a few days riding around Nadi, he started the first leg to Lautoka. Spending nights with families in towns and villages, he made his way to Suva by cycling up Mount Victoria then to Monasavu Dam. When he arrived in Suva, Mr Harris made his way back to Nadi via the Kings Highway to Ra where he tried whitewater rafting and went on scenic tours.
