Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 6th January 2019
26 riders arrived in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were sunny with a southerly wind blowing and much cooler than previous days . We had some first time riders with us today and all rode the longer ride and coped well with the pace of the ride.
8 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 18 rode the longer ride. Ride conditions on the longer ride were at a fast pace with the wind assisting for most of the ride until reaching the turning point at Woodend for the ride back to Gisborne. As the ride back to Gisborne was mostly downhill after the climb out of Woodend the good speed continued for the remainder of the ride.
Back at the cafe it was the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home.
