The day dawned with grey clouds and drizzly rain but it didn’t last, just stayed cool. We left Albany with great enthusiasm as we rode out to North Albany Senior High School to be greeted by the school councillors and students for yet another great Official Start to Hawaiian Ride for Youth 2011 – the 9th.
We arrived in Albany safe and sound with many riders heading out for a warm up on their bikes.
There is a lot of apprehension on what tomorrow will bring with some of the newer riders wondering what is ahead of them.
The dinner at the new “Rustlers Restaurant” was terrific, large and roomy with hosts Dean and Tammy looking after us as if we were royalty.
