5 riders arrived in Woodend for today’s ride on a cold morning with a strong southerly wind. We rode our usual 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, Chases Lane, Batters Lane and Clancys Lane back to Woodend. We commenced riding under cloudy skies with the sun starting to shine and once out remained clear for the rest of the ride.
Ride conditions were a strong tail wind for the first half of the ride. Upon reaching Batters Lane and turning to ride back to Woodend it was into the head wind for the rest of the ride.
Back at the cafe in Woodend we welcomed the warmth with the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
