CYCLISTS revelled in the chance to take in the Hume Weir's spectacular views yesterday as they rode across it as part of a cancer wellness centre fundraiser.
There were 436 participants in the Dorevitch Lake Hume Cycle Challenge.
There were four different rides, ranging from a five-kilometre family ride and a 134-kilometre Granya Grind.
The most popular of the rides was the 40-kilometre Weir Wall Waddle, with cyclists able to make the trip for the first time in five years.
"It's a beautiful day and a chance to get over the weir," Mount Beauty's Russell Weiss said.
"We have a friend who recently died of breast cancer, so we're putting in the love for her and everyone else."
Chris Smith, who came from Melbourne to ride with his brother and a friend, said he saw it in a cycling magazine.
"I grew up in Wodonga and it's not very often you get an organised ride over the weir wall," he said.
More than $15,000 was raised at the event for a wellness centre the Border's soon to be developed Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre.
The centre will provide programs to help cancer sufferers and families with complementary therapies, information and support.
