4 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. A cold morning with a very strong North Westerly wind awaited us for the ride. Prior to departing one of the riders had a phone call with a family issue and decided not to ride.
3 riders commenced to ride our normal 53km Thursday ride to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and back along Batters Lane. The ride was slow early as we were riding directly into the wind for most of the way. Once we reached Pipers Creek Road we had either a cross tail wind or a direct tail wind back to Woodend.
Once back in Woodend it was into the warmth of the cafe for the usual refreshments and chat before heading home.
