20 members arrived in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. The weather was very cold at the start with the sun shining and a strong southerly wind blowing. Another member joined the long ride after having ridden from Woodend.
11 members rode the medium ride and 10 rode the longer ride. One member shortened the medium ride as he had other commitments. With the southerly wind blowing both rides had a tail wind up the climbs followed by a head wind back to Gisborne. 3 members on the medium ride also climbed Waterfalls & Governors Roads for the first time. An excellent effort. Fortunately most of the ride back to Gisborne was downhill and the wind was not a big hindrance.
Riders were together at the cafe except that is was very cold under the trees and the medium group had left just before the long ride group arrived. The usual chatter and refreshments were enjoyed before everyone went home.
