Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne – 8th November 2015
24 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning on a great day for riding, a record number of riders for a Sunday ride, including a new member having her first ride with the club, as well as 2 friends of current members who rode with us for the first time. The group were later joined by Luke on the ride to make 25 riders in total. We always leave on time to give him something to chase for a challenge.
16 riders chose the longer ride option over Mt Macedon from the Woodend side including 4 riders who had never climbed the Mount from Woodend before and all successfully made it to the top and then handled the rapid descent down the other side and returned to Gisborne via the Baringo loop. The remaining 9 riders rode the shorter route via Mt Macedon, Waterfalls Rd and Baringo.
The club then managed to fill the coffee shop up with thirsty members where Dave was sulking because he was not allowed to have multiple stops on the way. He missed out on stops both at Woodend and The Mount on the way down.
A great mornings ride was had by all in perfect conditions, minimal wind and nice sunshine and most importantly NO RAIN.
