21 members assembled for today’s ride including 2 new riders on a beautiful morning for riding, clear skies and hardly any wind. The turnout was the best we have had for some time especially when there were plenty of riders who regularly ride who were not in attendance.
3 riders opted for the half version of the shorter ride including one of our newest members, 5 rode the published short ride and 13 rode the longer route including our 2 new lady riders and another lady rider who had previously not attempted such a long ride. All riders covered there respective distances with ease and the main street of Gisborne was later filled by all the riders having a well earned coffee at the conclusion of the ride.
As they say “it is not about the ride but the coffee afterwards that’s important”.
