CENTENARIAN BERYL BREAKS NEW RECORD ON TRICYCLE
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.
