Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 4th March 2018
28 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were overcast with a cold south wind blowing. 12 riders started on the long ride, 15 on the medium ride and one riders rode the short ride. Riders on the long ride were joined by 5 other members who had sneaked out earlier at 7.15am and climbed the mountain and back down to Straws Lane where they waited for the other riders to arrive. The long ride then became 17 riders.
One member on the medium ride had the misfortune to have a puncture just before commencing the climb up Mt Macedon Road and 3 members chose to stay and ride with him. They then rode up to Straws Lane and then the reverse direction of the ride and rejoined the remaining 8 riders on the medium ride near Carlshrue.
3 riders rode a modified version of the medium ride by not climbing Mt Macedon Rd.
Once this was all sorted out and everyone was back together at the cafe there was a lot of chatter and fun about the various options chosen. After suitable refreshments we all went home with one rider riding back to Gisborne into the head wind.
