A BLEND OF LARYNX AND LYCRA
This weekend was the 28th annual Spring Cycle ride in Sydney. I chose to do the 55km ride from North Sydney to Olympic Park at Homebush.
This year there was the added opportunity to take part in the “Largest Choir on Bicycles” Guinness World Record attempt. Wanting all the fame and public adulation I can get, without actually doing anything, I pulled out all stops and went for it with my larynx and lycra.
We rode with renowned sopranos, mezzos, tenors and baritones from Opera Australia and the well known shower and bathroom baritone Steve “Motorbike’ Brown, as we sung and cycled our way across the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The spring weather was just fantastic with buckets of sunshine, truckloads of fresh air and acres of sweaty backsides that made their way through the streets of Sydney’s suburbs along the Harbour and Parramatta River to the finish line at the home of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.
I’m pleased to announce that once again I’ve made it into the Guinness Book of World Records and expect my certificate of achievement to arrive in the email very soon.
Uhm what can I do next? What about a world record for forgetting my car keys the most number of times in a day, or is that just because I’m getting old.
