A record number of riders (16) turned out on this overcast morn for a blast around the Paracombe loop. It was great to see so many new people join us this morning. Gus on his first ride out with the GG volunteered to be ride leader and sporting some stiff/sore legs I held the red light at the back. Despite a few light spinkles of rain, it was a nice morning for a ride with the smell of log fires in the air and reindeer popping their heads up to say 'hello' at the top of range rd north.
After 120km yesterday over what Frank of GW calls undulating I figured that today was going to be tough but apart from couple of catch my breath stops it wasn't nearly bad as I expected and the run home back to Price's was fantastic. Santa's car park on the top of Seaview Rd was a surprise. If only I could remember what i was blabbing on about back at the cafe that seemed to drawing so much attention from Roger, Kylie and Co.
