Ride Report:       x5 Riders left the city area to the sounds of Sunday church bells.  It was  welcoming weather for cyclists as we took Gardiner’s Creek trail and linked up with the Anniversary Trail  (Outer Circle).  A sudden “mechanical disaster”, {a snapped seat bracket bolt} in  the Kew area  saw a change of direction as we made our way into Alphington for urgent bike shop parts/repairs.    Lunch stop in Westgarth  and a group decision saw us on the Capital City trail with varying departures around Nth Melbourne area.  Thanks to all riders for an attempt at “bush mechanic skills”.
