6 riders arrived in Woodend to do battle with this mornings conditions. The weather was cold, very windy with a strong North Easterly wind blowing and the ever present threat of rain. We managed to avoid almost all of the rain as we rode between 2 showers.
We rode a modified 42km version of our normal Thursday ride by eliminating the loop along Chases Lane to avoid the head wind. On the way back we rode Russell and Crows Road for some extra distance. We enjoyed a tail wind back from the end of Dons Road back.
Once back in Woodend it was the usual refreshments and chatter before we headed home. One rider had to ride back to Gisborne but would have had a nice tail wind for the ride.
