Hobart put on some fantastic weather once again for a ride following the same route as in January around the CBD and then down through Sandy Bay and back up through Battery Point to Salamanca.
The count of riders came to approx. 150 which included a wonderful mix of people and included a group of riders from the 2009 Diabetes Tasmania ‘Pollie Pedal’. Liberal Senator for Tasmania, Guy Barnett, addressed the group and spoke of the importance of promoting active lifestyles.
A small selection of fresh fruit was available during the gathering period and three small bike lights where distributed as spot prizes.
The ride was the 12th in a row since February 2008, which kicked off a consistent gathering of bicycle users every month since.
All riders are to be commended for their patience and positive attitudes despite the slow pace.
