Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 23rd June 2019
23 members assembled in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were very cold with areas of frost still on the ground and the sun beginning to shine through the cloud and fog. As we commenced riding the sun began to shine more and the temperature slowly started to warm up.
13 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 10 rode the long ride. 7 riders on the medium ride climbed Mt Gisborne and the remainder followed the published route. Both groups arrived together at the regrouping point and continued back to Gisborne. One rider went past the turning point and we had to send one of the faster riders to retrieve him. A different 7 riders then added riding to McBean Ave to the published ride for a distance of 45 km for their ride.
Both groups were together at the cafe. Everyone enjoyed being able to sit in the sunshine for the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
