The Long and Windy Road

Club President George and MarkThe wind was the critical factor in today’s ride. What seemed like a gentle breeze at our backs on the way north to Coffs had turned into a raging gale by the time we had our coffee and headed back south to Urunga.

Despite the chilly starting conditions, there were 12 riders who took off from Urunga, which was a pretty large group.

The Legends left Urunga at 6am this morning, in the dark, and arrived at Macksville to meet the rest of the DUBBUG riders for the 120km ride to the southern end of the Kempsey bypass.
