Simple pleasures. Nature's theme park. Blackbutt reserve Newcastle.
Following Le Tour de France, which is hardly a simple event, near the French Suisse border Sunday, (SBSTV), out of town roads pass through open country and fields of wheat as well as sophisticated parts and clusters of villagers. Urban freeways are another story and not part of the cycle race.
Seems a good idea to constrain urban development within city limits, go high rise and prevent covering wide country areas with endless housing estates. Dense housing kept contained within a new centre is desirable to set up and replicate with swathes of the great out doors never too far away. Go Cadel!
