Sunday Ride – Gisborne -17th November 2019
21 members arrived in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride with another member joining the long ride after starting from home as the ride was going past the front door making 22 riders in all. The weather was overcast with a cold southerly wind blowing which remained constant for the entire ride.
9 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 13 rode the long ride. Both rides were tail wind or cross tail wind early in the ride with the opposite for the latter portion of the ride. As the latter portion of both rides were mainly down hill the head wind was not such a big issue. 2 riders on the medium ride rode a slightly shorter version with another rider adding in some extra hills just for practice. The medium ride was all back together for the last portion of the ride.
Back at the cafe it was everyone together for the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
