Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 27th January 2019
26 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride with one rider joining part way through the ride. Weather conditions were much cooler than the past few days. Overcast early with temperatures around the 20 degree mark by the end of the ride with a light breeze blowing. We also had 1 first rider with us this morning who rode the medium ride.
12 riders rode the longer ride with one other member joining them on the ride making 13 in all. The remaining 14 rode the medium ride. The medium ride split into 2 groups with 11 riders climbing Mt Gisborne and 3 following the published route. Both groups rejoined after the descent from Mt Gisborne and continued for the remainder of the ride together. All rides were ridden at a good pace due to the absence of any strong wind.
After the ride all riders were together at the cafe for the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home.
