What an absolutely amazing day on the Dungarvan Greenway!! Our “Waterford Bikefest ” Community Bike Ride started with a reunion of friendships with cyclists from a previous Waterford bike ride and an introduction to new people, plus a few of my Cork Community Bike Ride “regulars “, who made the trip down from Cork to support their neighbouring county. A bit of a PR day for Community Bike Rides so we started in festive mood, met “The Boss ” , Jason plus a photo shoot before we headed off.  We were joined by one of the local Community Bike Rides Leaders,  Declan and one of his local regulars on an electric trike! Definitely all Bikes welcome!! In high spirits, we set off on the Greenway heading for the old Durrow Railway Station. On route,  we were treated to the great scenery,  in glorious sunshine with fantastic vistas and opportunity for some fantastic memorable photos. Naturally,  as we do, we interacted with people along the way and imposed upon them , ( in a very friendly manner) to take our group photos. The most memorable event was at the Durrow railway Station where we had an encounter with a Hen Party on a cycle trip. They were great craic and we “persuaded ” them to join us for a group photo, which they did. While posing for this, we “persuaded ” three other,  random,  passing cyclists to join us. It seems that everyone bends to our will, as I do believe that our good humour and nature,  is so infectious, that people just love us. Such is a typical Bike Ride with Community Bike Rides!! Initially, when the Hen party arrived we were able to assist one of the group, who had taken a fall from her bike and needed some small bit patching up. Thankfully, one of their group was a Nurse and made use of our First Aid kit. After First Aid, the photos and plenty of craic, I was invited to join the Hen party, but my responsibilities lay with my charges, so I politely declined.  Such pressure us Community Bike Ride Leaders are subjected to!!!! We said our good byes,  the Hens going in the opposite direction and we headed back towards Dungarvan and our coffee stop at the Railway Cottage in Ballinroad,  adjacent to the Greenway. And what a stop. Everything was top class with plenty of outside seating.  More positive and friendly interaction here with customers and staff.  What else!!??. Suitably fed and watered in the glorious sunshine, we continued on our journey back to Dungarvan. Arriving back, it was regretfully time to say our goodbyes to each other, for we truly had, an absolutely, fantastic day.
