Canola Canter information
Since 1999 on the second Sunday in October BWW has run the Canola Canter. The Canola Canter is conducted under the rules of the Audax Club of Australia. These non-competitive rides involve riding a set distance within a time limit. Distances of 51km, 101km and 204km are available as road rides with a 51km mixed terrain ride also being offered.
The links are:

Photos from the Canola Canter 2020

Dome Deli travelled to Wagga Wagga especially to ride the 204km. Being the sole entrant in that event Dome decided to wait the half-hour to start with the 101km participants so that he'd have some company for the first loop. Dome did this by riding in front of everyone. A great effort on a great day.

Some happy snaps from the Canola Canter 51km Brevet Gravel. Or, as termed by some riders, the Filthy Fifty. Looks like pigs in mud to me.

Some people thought that CC means Coolamon Coffee not Canola Canter. But they still managed to finish well within the Audax time limit. And after they had finished they went for another coffee. A caffeine craving perhaps?

Robert Carter came down from Sanctuary Point to drop home his grandkids at The Rock. He decided to "have some fun" by doing the 101km Canola Canter.

These two photos are of the 4 entrants in the Canola Canter 51km road ride. Now, the question is which photo was taken before the ride and which one was taken after they had finished the ride? To me, they look just as relaxed in both photos it's hard to tell.
