Happy Smiling People

Riders keen to do it all again
Hundreds of bike riders pedalled into town yesterday on the closing day of the Great Tasmanian Bike Ride. Over the nine-day ride, bike enthusiasts tackled the state's rugged West Coast, braved bad weather and came home with only a few bumps and bruises. The ride began in Deloraine at the start of the month, travelled through Lake Barrington, Strahan, Bronte Park and finished yesterday with a 56km ride from Bushy Park to Salamanca Place. The event, organised by Bicycle Victoria, attracted bike riders from around Australia as well as England, New Zealand, Canada, the US, China and Malaysia.

Friendship ride attracts 1,000 cyclists
About 1,000 Thai and foreign cyclists took part in the annual Thai-Burmese bicycle ride yesterday. The trip, organised to promote friendship between the two neighbours, kicked off at an opening ceremony chaired by Senator Udon Tantisunthorn at King Naresuan Stadium in Mae Sot district. Participants pedalled around the city before crossing to Myawaddy, on the Burmese side, visiting temples and tourist spots. Entrants came from Thailand, Burma, Europe and Australia.
