24 members assembled in Gisborne this morning on the first morning after the end of daylight savings. The weather was warm with a strong north westerly wind blowing. The ride was in one of best temperature conditions for the year to date. Due to Autumn Festival traffic in Mt Macedon today’s ride was varied to avoid the area. We also had 2 members riding who have not ridden with us for some time.
7 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 17 rode the longer ride in 2 groups. The faster riders in front followed by the slower riders in the second group. The northerly meant both rides were into the wind riding in the direction of Woodend. The riders then enjoyed the tail wind back to Gisborne.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home. It was a welcome change to be able to sit outside under trees and be warm.
