"Blazing Saddles" 6 Hour Bicycle Rogaine - 30th November 1997

A small group of people turned up for a pleasant afternoon entertainment - pleasant for us because we enjoyed the hospitality of the Parkerville Tavern.

Some people very keen because they came from Geraldton! John Cummins was impressed by the whole concept and is thinking about organising an event up there, so start thinking seriously about a long weekend adventure.

All appeared to enjoy the event and there was the odd tale to tell. In particular, it was ironic that as I set the event and having had the distinction of being one of the few people not to make it back under my own steam, that this feat should be repeated again by Hamish Barrett. It appears that having scored more points than anyone else by far, the final climb back up Greenmount Hill was too much him and Ricky had to retrieve him by car - bad luck guys - it was a great effort.

Prizes were awarded to the winners courtesy of Pete Cycles of Walter Road Morley. Pete supplied technical support for my father’s preparations on both of his cross Australia rides and is a top bloke.

Cheers, Ian Thomsett
