2 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cloudy with the threat of rain. After checking the weather radar it showed a band of rain had passed through with another band of rain to follow.
We rode a modified 32km version of the normal Thursday ride with a close eye on the weather. On arrival in Newham we could see some very black clouds in the direction of Carlshrue. We decided to turn back at that point and rode Anderson Rd, Russells Rd,Crows Rd back to Woodend. As we neared the top of Crows Rd it started to rain lightly and with the downhill part into Woodend we were back at the car by the time the rain got heavy.
It was then into the cafe for a chat and refreshments before heading home.
