I had another great day out enjoying camaraderie with fellow Ulysseans on Sunday. Just over a dozen of us gathered at Officer for the ride. On the way to the start point I noticed that it was very windy and it did stay that way all day, so that provided some extra challenges as we later crossed the hills of South Gippsland.
18 riders assembled at the Lilydale meet point on a clear sunny but mild day, including two first-timers (both Peter).
Six of us enjoyed extending the Australia Day holiday by exploring the Upper Murray on a three day mid-week ride based around Tallangatta this year. The small group size enabled us to dispense with most of the normal protocols such as corner markers etc, and we simply kept an eye out for each other and it worked well.
