Churchyard Physiotherapy la Femme Fun ride

by | Feb 15, 2014

Cool but fine with the promise of better weather on the way is what greeted riders to the 3rd la femme fun ride.

A smaller field than previous years with no rush of late entries left Palmerston North right on time. P1020156

One small hiccup as the first rider from the 20km headed to the finish line and in her eagerness followed the Police car that was the lead vehicle in to the parking area rather than continuing straight ahead to the finish line. One other unfortunate mistake on behalf of a rider who had read the maps and seen the arrow pointing in the direction of the ride but decided to set a new course eventually making her way back to Memorial Park and the brunch that awaited. Soon after tales of other riders heading in the wrong direction just going straight past the marshals or taking short cuts were being laughed about. So it is a good thing that it is a fun ride and that the food and drink and a sit down at the end was on offer.

Peter McCarthy did a marvelous job as MC and kept the ball rolling. He started by thanking the sponsors and volunteers who without their help and support events like this would not be possible. This covers a huge range of people who look after the traffic management, medical support, timing, catering and event management.
