TAKE care - The criterium cycling circuit around the perimeter of the newly opened Girraween Sporting Complex is the home of man and his bike. It's not the home of man and his dog.

Councillor Russell Green has warned of potential disaster if a relaxed stroll with the family pet is interrupted by the lighting speed of a cyclist on the training track.

"You only have to look at the Tour de France when a dog wanders in front of a cyclist," Cr Green said.

Cr Green encouraged people to keep their dogs safe and use other council designated areas for walking them.

"There are many other areas such as parkways and beaches that can be used," he said.

The public is asked to heed the sign at the site, advising the circuit is for cyclists only, with symbols denoting no dogs, no motorbikes, no skateboards, no pedestrians, and no vehicles.

Girraween facts

From time to time the circuit will be booked for events and subsequently closed to the public.

Girraween is the home to Noosa Lions Football Club and Noosa Little Athletics.
