The prospects for rain were high so I put it out to the guys to maybe call off the ride this weekend and I would just do a local ride if it was clear. However a few responded that weather depending they would ride so it was on. I awoke at 6 am and it was clear so got ready and set out in the car to get to Port Melbourne for the 7:30 start. My friends were already there when I arrived. One set off early thinking that we would catch up but it remained a solo rider for him all day. Although on beach road you are never alone. We did see him on the rebound from Mordialloc. The friend I rode with and I waited at Brighton for a rider who said he would ride but didn’t turn up. Frustrating.
Although the roads were damp we again had a surprisingly mostly rain free ride apart from a brief very light shower close to the end of the ride between St. Kilda and Port. At coffee we were joined by another friend who drove in just for a social chat.
