John Woodman Memorial

Cycling Festival

The first Wagga to Albury was held in the 1930s. Leaving the Wagga Wagga railway station, the race travelled east to Tarcutta, before travelling south through Holbrook to Albury, finishing outside the Globe Hotel in Dean Street. In 1948 the race changed to a shorter route via the Olympic Way to Albury. The last of the original races was held in 1963, before the race was revived by the then Lavington Sports Club Cycling Club.

The first of the modern races was held on 4 June 1986 with 96 entries, rolling out from the carpark of the Tolland Hotel.

The first edition of the race was titled Wagga to Albury Cycling Classic. It was renamed the John Woodman Memorial Wagga to Albury Cycling Classic a year later, in honour and memory of John Woodman. Today it remains one of the few city to city handicap races on the Open calendar.
