Sunday Social Ride – Gisborne – 4th June 2017

18 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were cold and frosty, however the sun was shining, making the temperature feel a little warmer. We also had 3 first time riders with the club this morning including 2 from the Femmes Cycling Workshops.

11 riders rode the longer ride, 6 rode the medium and one rider rode the short ride. During the ride the weather got warmer as the ride progressed and all members enjoyed the ride. Perfect conditions with the sun shining and no wind.

Part way through the medium ride we were joined by 2 additional riders including one more from the Femmes Workshop group which made 8 riders. Of the riders on the medium ride 5 climbed Waterfalls Rd/ Governors Road for the first time. The climb was followed by the quick descent down Mt Macedon Road which they all enjoyed without taking any risks.

All riders were then together at the cafe at the same time as those on the longer ride began to arrive not long after the medium group got back. The usual chatter was enjoyed as we basked outside in the sun with our coffees before we all headed homeward.
