Sunday Ride – Woodend – 21st October 2018
27 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were a little fresh with some sun shining through and a light South wind blowing. We had 3 first time riders with the group who were either friends or partners of existing members.
19 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 8 rode the longer ride. Once on the ride and past the climbing section out to the end of Ashbourne Road and toward Trentham for the longer ride, both rides then had a tail wind for the next portion of the ride. With the tail wind the ride pace was reasonably fast together with a mainly downhill section until rides began to head back to Woodend. With the wind being light a solid pace was also held on the way back to Woodend. As the ride progressed we had more sunshine especially once we were out of the trees.
Most riders were together at the cafe for the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home.
