7 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride on a cold morning with the sun shining and a southerly wind blowing. Jennie also drove into Woodend making 8 members and rode out to Carlshrue to join up with us and ride the way back. Great to see her back on the bike again. Whilst the temperature did not increase much during the ride all riders agreed it was one of the better Thursday mornings for some time.
3 riders ride the usual 53km loop to Bryces Lane, then Newham, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back. The other 4 bypassed the Bryces Lane loop for a total of 47km with the rides regrouping near the Carlshrue Roadhouse.
Once back in Woodend it was great to be able to sit in the sun while we enjoyed the chatter and refreshments before heading home.
