Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne – 30th October 2016

10 riders arrived at the New Gisborne Car Park this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were very windy with a strong North West wind blowing, sun shining and rain had ceased. All riders rode a 36km modified medium route. We rode up to Nursery Road as per published route, followed by the climb up Waterfalls Road then back down Mt Macedon Road to Hamilton Road where we rejoined the published ride. Because of the strong winds we did not ride the Baringo loop. For most of the ride when riding northwards we were reasonably well protected from the worst of the wind.

From the top of Waterfalls Road into Gisborne we enjoyed the tail wind.  A head wind back to Ferrier Road followed before the final tail wind back to the cafe.

Once at the cafe it was warm sitting in the sun out of the breeze. A good time and chat was had by all over refreshments. Everyone agreed that it was a great ride and after refreshments were finished we departed for home pleased with the ride.
