Day a Tour de force

THE Tour is over for another year, and what a great day it was.   Without the major yearly support of the Clarence Valley Council, Maclean Home Timber and Hardware, SPAR Maclean and Harwood Sugars this charity event would not be possible. Maclean Rotary Club would also like to thank CHESS Employment, Causley Fresh and over 30 volunteers and members of the SES for their important support to make this a success.   On May 5 over 120 riders met at Brushgrove to enjoy riding on Woodford Island. From four years to 82 years they all had a great time.   This fourth tour once again brought riders, families and clubs together from as far away as the Sunshine Coast to the north and Safety Beach to the south.   The riders left the Brushgrove Triangle park at 8.30am in a mass group of colour for a lovely ride and tailwind behind them breaking into two groups for their nominated course distance ether 20 or 45 kilometres.   After a bit of a headwind from the Maclean end of the island two riders came in together with hardly a wheel distance between them to finish in approximately 1hr 12min and cheering from the spectators.   The residents of Woodford Island, Brushgrove and Cowper Public School got involved with cake stall and barbecues.   Thank you! See you all (and more) next year for the 5th Tour de Woodford at the Triangle!   Simon Willmore, co-ordinator - 2013 Tour de Woodford, Rotary Club of Maclean
