2 brave souls turned up this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cold, very windy with light rain commencing to fall. By the time we had ridden out to around the back of Hanging Rock any rain had long disappeared and we rode the remainder of the ride in sunshine and drying roads.
We rode a 40km modified version of our normal Thursday Ride by eliminating the Chases Lane segment as neither of us wanted to turn back into the head wind when we reached that point. Once we started riding on 3 Chain Road we had either a tail wind or a cross tail wind for the remainder of the ride. After the first half of the ride when we rode into the wind it was good to have wind assistance on the way back.
Back in Woodend it was into the warmth of the cafe for refreshments before heading home.
