Dave led a relaxed Sunday group of nine cyclists to Lara on Christmas Eve. Andrew volunteered to be tail-ender, and did a most excellent job throughout the whole ride. The other riders were Coralie (on her new racing green Bike Friday), Margy, Geoff, Lynton, John M and Helen.
John caught up with the group at the refinery, having slept in. The ride to Lara was easy, assisted by a strengthening northerly wind.
Lara coffee shops were closed except for the chain beside the Coles supermarket. Serving coffee to 9 thirsty cyclists, as well as anyone else wanting coffee on Christmas Eve was a difficult task as there was only one worker. However, refreshments and treats were soon consumed and it was back via the same route, a little slower due to the head wind.
Thanks Dave and Andrew and all riders for a most enjoyable Christmas Eve ride.
