Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 14th October 2018
35 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were windy and warm and most riders had dispensed with winter gear for the ride. Wind direction was a strong north easterly but we were protected by the trees mainly when riding into the wind. We also had many members who had not ridden much over the colder months back with us, plus friends of members joining us for the first time.
28 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 7 rode the longer ride. The medium ride split into 2 groups from the top of Governors Road. Some of the riders on the medium ride opted not to climb both Waterfalls Road and Governors Road and rode direct to Baringo where they waited for the other riders to descend Mt Macedon Road. Once heading back from Baringo it was with a good tail wind all the way back to Gisborne.
Back at the cafe all riders were present for the usual refreshments and chatter before heading home.
