5 riders today at the start at Drysdale Station. After pre-ride coffee for some of the team we headed around the Drysdale Bypass bike path then via Portarlington Rd to Scotchman’s Hill gravel. Only a small amount of complaining from at least one of the riders about the condition of the road (!) We made it through to St Leonards after a very pleasant ride around the ‘noisy’ gravel path on the Esplanade for a coffee stop at The Fig Tree where we were able to sit outside.
It was then back on the gravel around to Bluff corner, through the back streets of St Leonards and back to Drysdale Station via Manifold Rd and Andersons Rd. 46km in total.
Luckily the weather stayed pretty good, just a small amount of occasional drizzle and not too windy.
