33 members assembled in GIsborne this morning for the first club ride since the easing of Covid 19 restrictions. The weather was ideal for riding with warm and sunny conditions and a light breeze. We had one new member having their first ride with us and 2 other first time riders also.
16 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 17 rode the long ride. The medium ride split into 2 groups early in the ride but rejoined later at one of the stopping points. All riders on the medium ride extended the ride for some additional kilometers. With the ideal conditions all rides were conducted at a good speed and everyone enjoyed the sunshine and lack of strong winds.
All members were together at the finish of the ride for the usual chatter and refreshments at the cafe.
