Great day for riding, and so thought nearly 40 other Club members for the ride to Walpole. We rode through Denmark and on to Bow River for a break, always a nice stop with plenty of shade and good coffee
Then a ride up the Hazelvale Road which joins onto the North Walpole Road. Hazelvale Road has some of the best sweeping bends to ride on with a nice smooth road surface. But the Main Roads Dept had decided to leave a considerable amount of loose blue metal on the last bend before the T-junction of the North Walpole Road.
In parts this road had improved lots as it used to be very
rough, but very windy and scenic. So the patches of good road
was welcome. Luckily nobody had come to grief on the loose stuff
We spread ourselves out in the park opposite the cafe enjoying lunch before heading home. Great ride, great weather.
