CAPTAIN'S FLAT BICYCLE SPORTS. [BY A SPECIAL REPORTER.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 April 1905
CAPTAIN'S FLAT BICYCLE SPORTS. [Bv A Speciai Reporter. 1 Some of the events had been already decided, and some of the riders emptied off their machines, aud likewise some of the said machines badly wiecked, when, the writer arrived at Captain's Flat. For this scribe's delay in getting there, there 'was a succession of reasons, made up of a succession of stiff hills — and they're hard things to push a bike o%-er on a warm day.. Tbe Club Committee had no rea son to complain about the number of entries received. Every event produced a good field, and there was some fine racing, notwithstand ing the limited size of the track and the defective handicapping — for neither of which the committee can ht held responsible. Nature dumped the Flat so closely down between the hifis that it wou'd be a hard matter to get a larger track about there ; and the writer doesn't reckon that nature ever intended the Gouiburn gent who allotted the handicaps for that sort of work. However that may be, there ...
