4 members braved the conditions for this mornings ride. Cold with light drizzle and a southerly wind blowing.
We split into 2 groups with 2 riders riding the normal 53km loop and the other 2 riding a shorter 47km loop by eliminating the Bryces Lane section. Once we reached Newham the sun began to break through the clouds and we rode the remainder of the ride under reasonable conditions. Riding back to Woodend was into a headwind however the wind seemed to change direction constantly and at times we appeared to have a slight tailwind on some sections.
Once back in Woodend it was into the warmth of the cafe for the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home. We were also joined by Michael C for a catch up.
