A fabulous day out on the bikes was the recipe today, with 19 riders in total for the ride. The day was a little cool to start with at Woombye a stunning 8 degree’s as we all met up for our ride with Nev all keyed up to lead. Prior to the start of the day Nev gave us a very short brief of our ride as he wasn’t sure of all names of roads that we would be taking, it become well known that we all better keep up all just meet everyone at Kilcoy. But as it turned out everyone follow the leader as true followers we are with no one getting lost or misplaced. The ride went from Woombye, Palmwoods and Eudlo onto Old Gympie road then up Tunnel ridge to Landsborough then onto Maleny road down Mt Mellum road back Landsborough Old Gympie road to Beerwah, Beerburrum, Elimbah, Wamuran, Woodford, Neurum Road to Kilcoy for a short break at Kilcoy. (A report from the Front of the group was the lead rider had to make an emergency stop along the way as he couldn’t wait until Kilcoy, “that is a problem with getting Older”) At Kilcoy we were able to obtain a bit of morning tea so we could head up to Jimna What a great ride it was with all having bit of fun on the way up and back. Jimna brought back some memories for Geoff because this was the place he 1st met us and now he has the bug of being with the group of like minded people. Thanks to Nev for planning and leading the ride, it was another great day out on the bikes with a great group of people.
Just an update on Pete T: things are going well for him and he hopes he will be out of Hospital either late this afternoon or Tomorrow morning. So if you we intending to see him it might pay to give him a call first.
