cold at the start!
Squeazasis, davecole, green alias and weg arrived from Lilydale at Mt Evelyn (where the slightly less hardy had gathered). Fixie, Mrs Fixie, Ridinwithdale, some forum lurkers who I shall call G and L, Atom Ant, Weeeeeee, Mrs Weeeeeeee and mini Weeeeeee and me. (I hope that is everyone)
We headed off, and gradually the temperature came up, and at least for a while the sun was shining. Of course, an early coffee stop was needed at the Carriage in Seville - which also allowed a regroup and plenty of chat. UJ1 joined us just as we headed on the next stage.
Lunch at the bakery in Warburton. Congratulations to Mrs Fixie on her ride to Warburton.
Congratulations to Mrs Weeeeeee and Mini Weeeeeee for completing their longest rides so far.
These three stayed in Warburton for the shuttle car service - so Fixie and Weeeeeee set a cracking pace on the return trip to provide this service. The rest of us were a bit less pressured, and managed another stop at the Carriage on the return journey. Yogibearr jopined us at some totally random point in the ride - but had allegedly been on the bike long enough to need cheesecake.
Atom Ant (who had been straggling at the rear claiming poor health) proved he hadn't been faking, by only almost
making it home before being sick. He is now showered and in bed asleep!
Thanks all for another Easter Warburton Special. See you next year! (well, hopefully a lot sooner really)
