  1. The Winter Solstice - Police Public Relations

    Group riding can be very enjoyable and there will be times, perhaps frequent times, when you go on a ride you won't know many or any people. The adage "Ride your own ride," is often heard and read about.

    If you have a mentor and ride with a few friends, take some time out to review the general group riding strategies.

    It may be the shortest day, and cold, but while group riding we are often reminded of our riding responsibilities, for not only our own safety, ...

    Last year we did a winter solstice ride up to Alfredton and Eketahuna, so thought it appropriate to set up a ride for 2008. Note this 2008 ride is shorter,going as far as Mauriceville then back to Gladstone.

    There are a few things I want to share that some of you too may have encountered similar 'anxiety moments'.

    Late last month I remarked upon the little voice inside that was making me think about selling the 900 Hornet and downsizing.
