Located in far north Queensland is the City of Cairns. One of the favourite local rides is known as Copperlode, which leads up to Lake Morris. This edition is an 8.5km KOM section of the full length. With an average gradient of approximately 4.7% over the distance, it’s challenging enough. Many “critters” from python snakes, goanna monitor lizards to cassowarys have been seen on this road, so keep an eye open should you do the ride on a trip to Cairns.
