16 March but 19 riders leave town
On a slightly overcast morning 19 riders gathered at the Art Gallery gardens in anticipation of the Cambooya ride.
New riders again this month, welcome to all of you.
The prize for 'Most determined rider' must go to Rita-may who persevered with her borrowed stead, complete with 'clunking' stand, and is still determined to go and buy a 'real' hybrid bike for next months ride.
Two riders peeled off at pre-determined stages and 17 riders returned to the same hitching post area to coffee at the Oxygen Cafe.
New rides were discussed along with the rising tide of anger many riders find out on the road. Sgt. Col O'Shea's visit and talk were very much on the mind of one rider who had been targeted by a ute driver on his way home from work.
The incident was over so fast no number plate could be taken this time.
