9 riders assembled in Woodend this morning on an excellent day for riding. Weather conditions were clear skies and a light breeze after a frosty start to the day.
We also had a first time rider with the group this morning. We rode our normal 52 km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Road to Chases Lane then returning back to Woodend at Batters Lane. As the wind was light the ride was conducted at a brisk average speed. We had a head wind (Breeze) early and a tail wind for the return.
Once back at the cafe it was the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home.
