Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne – 27th September 2015
17 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning on what was the best morning for cycling since the end of Autumn and they were joined by 2 others on the way to Woodend. 3 riders started slightly ahead of the main group as they said the group would catch them anyway.
The remainder set off a few minutes later with Dave throwing the toys out of the pram because the ride had not made provisions for at least 2 coffee stops along the way. Just joking Dave. 8 riders elected to ride the longer route with one pulling out at Woodend and heading home and the remaining 11 rode the shorter route, it was good to see Lawrie back riding at the weekend as his sore shoulder had improved sufficient to enable him to ride today and also last Thursday on the Woodend ride. Also nice to see Lyn back again after the very cold morning of her last ride with us.
Good of Roscoe to take on Dave’s role of a coffee stop along the way as he managed to stop at the Trading Post on the way down the mount and saluted some of the other riders as they went past and then find time to join the rest of the crew in Gisborne for another cup. A gutsy effort by Roscoe. Now that the weather looks like it has turned for the better hopefully the rides will attract even more members each week.
