Sunday Ride – Gisborne – 15th September 2019
9 members (poor deluded souls) assembled in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were very windy with a north westerly wind. A rain shower had come through the area at about 8.00am but by the time the ride commenced the roads had dried and apart from the strong head and cross winds, ride conditions were good especially during the tail wind sections.
7 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 2 rode the longer ride. One other member who started from home also rode the longer ride and joined us at the cafe later but ahead of the other 2 on the long ride. There was an amusing incident on the long ride, names will not be mentioned. When the slower of the 2 riders reached the Kerrie Hall he found the other rider sitting on the side of the road watching highlights of the Vuelta on his phone. One way to catch up on the latest racing news.
We were all together at the cafe for the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
