4 hardy souls arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were very cold with a strengthening north wind and the threat of rain. One rider had some business to do at 9.00am and started later for the ride.
The remaining 3 rode a modified 40km version of our normal Thursday ride by eliminating the Chases Lane loop as the skies were looking very black part way through the ride. We arrived back in Woodend and were putting our bikes away as the rain began to fall. Good timing. Unfortunately the rider who had a later start was caught in the rain on the way back.
We were all together in the warmth of the cafe having our usual chatter and refreshments before all heading homeward.
