On Sunday the 16th of September, Kin Kin rider Lachlan Davis set off from the Brisbane GPO for an attempt on the Brisbane-Toogoolawah record set by the legendary Les Cecil in 1926. With a Northwesterly headwind blowing (as Cecil had also encountered!) and a wrong turn in the western suburbs of Brisbane it was a tough ride, and Lachlan fell short of the 1948 Brisbane-Esk record by 13:59 (record time 3hr56m).
Lachlan reached the Toogoolawah Post Office in 5hr8m28s to break the record by 16m32s, and established new records for Ipswich-Esk (2hr27m24s) and Ipswich-Toogoolawah (3hr26m). His first stop after the ride was the Toogoolawah History Museum, to view the bike that Les Cecil rode from Cairns to Canberra as part of the Commonwealth Jubilee celebrations in 1951. He is already planning to make another attempt on the Brisbane-Esk record, and to further lower the Brisbane-Toogoolawah time.
