Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 21st April 2019
20 riders assembled in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. We were greeted by a warm, overcast and very windy morning. All rides were modified from the published routes due to road works at one of the intersections by eliminating that section and rejoining the route at a later point.
3 riders rode the short ride, 9 rode the medium ride and the remaining 8 rode the longer ride. All rides had a head wind when riding in a northerly direction. Once at the top of the climbs we then had a strong tail wind for the later part of the ride.
Both the medium and the long rides arrived back at the cafe at nearly the same time and the riders on the short ride were still there waiting for the others to return. We then enjoyed the usual refreshments and chatter before heading home.
