JOHN Nye is the City of Man­durah’s Lo­cal Le­gend for Novem­ber. Nye com­pleted a solo mo­tor­cy­cle ride of the four cor­ners of In­dia, break­ing a Guin­ness World Record and rais­ing money for Peel Youth Med­i­cal Ser­vice (PYMS). He set off in Au­gust and trav­elled around the coast of In­dia, slash­ing 11 days off the pre­vi­ous record, com­plet­ing the chal­lenge in 23 days and rais­ing more than $10,000. The ride was one of the tough­est he had ever ex­pe­ri­enced, with ex­treme weather, crazy traf­fic, bad road con­di­tions and tech­ni­cal is­sues in the Hi­malayas. Man­durah Mayor Rhys Wil­liams said it was a priv­i­lege to meet such an in­spi­ra­tional per­son.
