Never too old…
Just to prove you’re never too old to cycle the Otago Central Rail Trail, and at a fair clip at that — which we don’t recommend as being head down and bum up is a sure fire way to miss wonderful scenery — 80 year old Southlander George Crack, a retired publican recently rode the trail in just two days. But what makes this feat even more newsworthy, George did it on a 1971 three-speed bike. Mind you he is no stranger to cycling achievements. In 1971 as the ‘Pedalling Publican’ he biked from Auckland to Bluff on the same three-speed bike in 23 days to raise money for the Stewart Island school to build a swimming pool. Thanks ‘Southland Times’ for making this a fun front page story.
