Cyclists’ chance to hit the wall

THE Dorevitch Lake Hume Cycle Challenge, always a ride to remember, has a twist.

Tomorrow’s version will allow riders take in the Hume weir wall for the first time in five years.

Albury Wodonga Health volunteer and fund-raising co-ordinator Elaine Hill said the challenge had rides for all fitness levels.

“It’s something people talk about long after,” she said.

The 133-kilometre Granya Grind leaves Noreuil Park at 7am, the 100-kilometre Tallangatta tour at 8am and the 40-kilometre Weir Wall Waddle at 9am.

There is also a short five-kilometre family ride or walk along the Murray River.

The challenge is a fund-raiser for the Wellness Centre, which will be part of the soon-to-be developed Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre.

It has raised more than $18,000 over two years.

The centre will provide programs to help cancer patients and their families, including complementary therapies and information sessions.

The member for Indi Cathy McGowan and Albury mayor Kevin Mack will take part.
