Birthday Girl Takes the Cake!
Rifle Butts Short Course
- Sunday 16th March 2008
Stawell cyclist Meg Parnaby celebrated
her birthday with a win as the Grampians Veteran Cycling
Club tackled Horsham’s 48km Rifle Butts short
course on Sunday.
Due to the predicted heat, an 8am
start was the order of the day, and the cool, calm
conditions were always going to favour the limit riders.
