Full Moon Ride to Oppy’s Bistro: Saturday, 16th February, 2019

Thanks to ride leader Tina for this report.

We met at Lara train station at 6pm. A pleasant ride in daylight. Kevin led the ride and Tina fetched up the rear. We had an enjoyable meal at Norlane Hotel at Oppy’s Bistro. Nick, Karen’s husband met us there for a meal.

We rode back just as it was beginning to get dark. Two highlights, Bernie who has not ridden in 3 months joined us. It was her first ever experience of cycling in the dark. Her lights were not particularly bright but she nestled in between two riders whose lights lit up her path. She was thrilled with her experience. The other highlight was David Salamy brought along a speaker and played music all MOON themes. Some of us sang along as we rode along happily.

The weather was fine. A little head wind on the way out. Quite still on our return. Cloudy so not ideal to see the moon. The position of the moon on our return was directly in front of us which was the aim. Thanks to Kevin.
