24 members arrived in Gisborne this morning for today’s ride. Most members were wearing the new club kit and looking resplendent apart from those who had rain jackets on. The weather conditions were cool and sunny with a light wind blowing. The medium ride enjoyed sunshine for most of the ride and dry roads while the long ride had short sections with damp roads and cloud in the treed area of the ride.
12 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 12 rode the long ride. Some riders on the medium ride extended the ride with 3 riders climbing Mt Gisborne early in the ride. 4 other riders extended the ride by going to Nursery Road late in the ride. There were 2 punctures on the medium ride, one early in the ride and the other near the finish. For different reasons both riders did not complete the scheduled ride.
All riders were together at the cafe for the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
