Toodyay was host to the first Tour de YEH (Youth Ending Hunger) in Australia when two young girls, Brigit Cosgrove and Libby Noble, cycled 83km from Perth to Toodyay through cold, wet and windy weather. The girls were practicing and fund-raising for a 5,000 km Tour de YEH ride in the USA in June. Shire President Geoff Ludemann, Hunger Project Co-ordinator Jan Smith and members of the Toodyay Tourist Centre met the girls met the girls on arrival.
