5 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather was typical of late with low temperatures and a breeze blowing that appeared to get stronger during the ride.
We commenced to ride our normal loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, then Chases Lane and back along Batters Lane. At the end of Collwells Road 2 riders decided to climb Straws Lane and the remainder continued on the ride. Another of the then 3 riders had to leave the ride early which left 2 riders completing the distance. While the wind began to strengthen at least we had a tail wind back to Woodend.
Once back at the cafe it was just the 2 of us enjoying the warmth and refreshments before heading home
