For the students at Bowen Public School, there's a new game in town at recess and lunchtime.
Forget handball, forget tag - the coolest thing to do at lunchtime is to give the new bike track at the school a spin.
The track was officially opened on Friday by principal Rob McPherson who said he was excited by the new track.
"We already had the path through as part of our indigenous garden but it was too large a space so what we're doing it combining them both," he said.
He said road signs on the track, as well as navigating pedestrians, would give a good chance for students to learn about road safety.
While he admitted there was a risk of students and bikes colliding, he said bikes wouldn't be able to build up speed on the track.
"There's a lot of learning to be done about cycle safety and road safety which is why we've included some of the signs they'll see out in the community, one-way traffic, slow around the bends," Mr McPherson said.
Staff have built nearly the entire course on their own, with some help from Cadia, and the school's brought five bikes for students who live too far from school to ride their own to have a go.
However, plenty of students will now jump at the chance to ride their bikes to school, with four of the first students to try out the new tracks saying they'd ride more often.
Jimmy Wells was the first student to complete a lap.
"It's really fun," he said.
"I'm happy, hopefully it's good and with the trees to grow. Not a lot of schools have this, it's really cool."
Skyla Keen said she thought the bikes and track was "pretty awesome".
