7 riders commenced their ride from Woodend this morning under warming conditions and climbed Mt Macedon to the Cross and returned via Boundary Road, Clancy’s Lane to Woodend, a distance of 38.5 km’s.
Apart from a couple of mishaps, one with Keith being unable access his 2 lowest gears on the climb but still managing to reach the Cross and Luke having the misfortune to break the chain on his bicycle just as he commenced the climb up Cameron Drive, rolled off the bike as well with no harm done to man or machine. He was able to rig the chain back to together and carefully rode back to Woodend where Russell at the bike shop repaired the chain and Luke then rode the route that we had ridden and joined us for coffee. Keith was also heading to Russell’s after coffee to have the gears on his bike adjusted.
All in all, an eventful morning but a great ride was had by all and much discussion ensued over coffee at the end.
