Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne – 24th April 2016

13 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning on a perfect day for riding, full sunshine with virtually no wind. It was also good to see John M back riding after his accident, plus also Lawrie was riding for the first time for 3 weeks and good to see him back with us.

3 riders rode the short ride, 6 rode the medium ride and the remaining 4 rode the longer circuit. Due to the easy weather conditions all rides were conducted at a good pace and the earlier riders were still at the cafe when the riders on the longer ride got back. The usual banter and discussions were held before all members departed for home. Dave and John were riding home and tackled Mt Gisborne for the second time today and were joined by Ken who rode the short ride but over Mt Gisborne. Who said that cyclists were not gluttons for punishment.

An enjoyable morning was had by all.
