Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne – 3rd April 2016
12 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning in sunny conditions but that soon changed to overcast and cool with a south easterly wind. Normal riding conditions as of late. Unfortunately Pene had a puncture on the ride to Gisborne from home and after replacing the tube she then had a second puncture so she called for the sag wagon and did not ride with us. It must have been the day for punctures because John M also had one on the way up Waterfalls road which was replaced and he completed the ride without any further problems.
5 riders rode the long ride and the remaining 7 the medium ride with 2 members on the medium ride stopping at the Trading Post on the way down from Governors Road. (No names but one member has tatt’s) The remaining 5 varied the ride details so as not to have to ride into Gisborne on market day but still rode the same distance as the scheduled ride. Riders on the long ride also met up with John McB and rode part of the way with him plus Alan T was at the cafe. Everyone were then back to the cafe together except the escapees at the trading post and they enjoyed a coffee break before heading home.
