CENTENARIA­N BERYL BREAKS NEW RECORD ON TRICYCLE

- MEG GANNON

TOOWOOMBA centenaria­n Beryl Muller has proven time and again that age is no burden to living your best life, and now the Yukana resident has a new record to her name to prove it.

Ms Muller broke a record in Toowoomba when she became the oldest passenger to go for a joy ride on a motorised tricycle.

Darling Downs Trike Tours visited Yukana Retirement Village in Toowoomba last week, and Ms Muller showed no hesitation in jumping on with her daughter-in-law, Helen.

Tour company co-owner Terry Gilchrist said he was thrilled to have the centenaria­n and other residents aboard.

“Previously the record for our oldest passenger was held by a 90 year old,” he said.

“At 100 years of age, Beryl just goes to show that age is no barrier.”

The company has put a raft of measures in place to cater for riders of all ages and abilities, including a step-bystep guide that has been assessed by a physiother­apist for getting on the trike.
