Vale Wendy Braybon

Bicycle Network is saddened by the news that a long term member and Great Vic Bike Ride enthusiast Wendy Braybon passed away recently.

Originally from Brighton in England, Wendy moved to Australia with her husband Mike Ranger in 1980.

Many people will have seen and got to know Wendy and Mike at the Great Vic which they rode 12 times in a row.

They were also regulars at Around the Bay and took part in older events including the Great Melbourne Bay Ride and EastLink ride in 2008.

Outside of bike riding, Wendy is also one of the unsung heroes of Australian sport. She was a key part of the Australian team as a physiotherapist at five Olympics.

We send our thoughts and best wishes to Wendy’s family and friends.
