Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 4th August 2019
12 brave riders (Foolhardy) assembled in Gisborne this morning on a cold, wet miserable morning. During the ride weather conditions improved slightly at various points during the ride. The improved conditions were only when we were not riding in the clouds and at one time the sun momentarily shone through. One of our riders who regularly travels from the Gold Coast was certainly suffering from a temperature shock.
7 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 5 rode the longer ride. All rides were modified from the posted rides due to the weather with neither ride climbing Mt Macedon because of the potential treacherous conditions possible on the descent. Ride distances were approx 10km shorter than the original rides.
Once back at the cafe it was a bedraggled bunch who enjoyed the chatter and refreshments before going home for a hot shower to warm up and a change out of wet clothes.
