There are renewed calls to initiate the proposed rail trail on the disused rail line from Queanbeyan to Bombala.

A tourist from Hungry, Adam is on a two year cycle venture around the world and has recently passed through the region.

When asked what he thought about riding on the Monaro Highway he says, "it's pretty bad."

Friends of the Monaro rail trail say the 208km proposed trail  would not only be a safer alternative but great opportunity to boost the region’s tourism and economy.

2 weeks ago world-renowned cyclist Mike Hall, was killed in a collision with a car on the Monaro Highway while competing in long distance cycling race across Australia.
