23 riders arrived in Gisborne for today’s ride. The weather was very cold with a strong north westerly wind blowing. We had 2 first time riders and one member from interstate with us.
12 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 11 rode the long ride. Some riders removed their wet/ windproof jackets early in the ride when we had the tail wind but then had to put them back on once we turned into the head wind. All rides enjoyed a tail wind early followed by the head wind and the tail wind to finish the ride. The long ride split into 2 groups with some returning from Nursery Road and not climbing Waterfalls Road.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
