Sunday Ride Report

Sunday was another spectacular winters day cold but the sun was shinning and there was a complete absence of wind. We had a good turnout taking in the excellent riding conditions Given we had done a Hills Ride the week before a long beach ride was chosen. Anzac Highway to Outer harbor and back to Glenelg for coffee.

We welcomed Geoff back from Holiday (he did ride the no excuses ride) and Michael R who had been sick. The presence of Hugh, Sam and David H meant a fast ride. This was compounded by Louis now having moved to adult gearing. This has two impacts as viewed from the back of the BG peleton. He is both extremely rapid and offers absolutely no shelter from the wind. Facts that had Mike wanting to buy him a feed of KFC.

Suffice to say I was not in contact for the sprints but am advised Louis won Outer Harbor and  West Lakes (Southern end) sprints. 

The sea was like glass and combined with the sunshine made for a great day. We tried a new place for Coffee. The Comfort Inn at Glenelg opposite the Buffalo. Quite good and definitely an option for the future.
