Aussie Cycling Club knows how to have fun

Reading the 1st half of a December story in the Wagin Argus made me smile.

THE Wagin Cycling Mob took advantage of a strong westerly wind last Sunday and, with youthful exuberance not common to the group, participated in an impromptu rolling no-pedalling competition.

A spur of the moment suggestion by Jennie Cumming saw cyclists group at the top of the Beaufort Road hill and then roll into town , with a winner being the one who rolled the furtherest.

Ric Thompson reached a speed of 49 kilometres per hour downhill while Glenys Ball came in first at a distance of 2 kilometres with Raylene Eckersley a close second, both riders on the same brand of bike. Whether or not that has anything to do with the results is not known but it was fun to finish the morning's ride with something silly.
