7 hardy souls arrived in Woodend to brave today’s ride conditions. The temperature was around about zero degrees with significant frost on the ground. It was cold hands and feet for the early part of the ride. By the time we had ridden out to the back of Hanging Rock the frost had begun to dissipate and the conditions were then better. Unfortunately the sun never shone through so it did not warm up a lot.
We rode our usual 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane then Chases Lane and back commencing in Batters Lane. Riding conditions were good with only a light breeze and we soon began to feel a little warmer.
Once back at the cafe it was good to get into the warmth, have a hot drink and a chat before heading home.
