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.
