Despite heavy rain overnight, and a gale force wind, three riders took on this morning’s ‘easy’ ride to Lara – David F, David J and Helen (ride leader). Stella was planning to ride some of the way, but bike issues (a folding bike that threatened to collapse while she was riding) meant a return home, bike swap and ride in Eastern Park for her.
David J had had a puncture on the way, and met the group in North Shore. The ride to Millars Cafe in Westlakes Estate, Lara was difficult, with a strong gusty wind. Coffee was most welcome. The payback came with the tail wind along Canterbury Road and Hovells Creek back to Corio. The sun disappeared behind increasingly black clouds, and by the time Rippleside Park was reached once more, there was light rain. Both Davids were riding home. There’s a bike clean on the agenda for all three riders.
Thanks for a most enjoyable ride.
