Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 31st May 2015

10 riders assembled on a typical Woodend winter’s morning ( Windy, Wet & Cold). Most riders had traveled to Woodend from out of town and left their homes under sunny skies. Good to see Andrew riding again on his cyclo-cross bike with chunky tyres, ideal for the conditions.

3 riders elected to ride the shorter route and the remaining 7 rode the longer route which was made even longer by Dave’s insistence on a mandatory coffee stop in Lancefield, so the longer ride was a distance of 64km.

In the interests of rider safety the published route was amended to not go up Mt Macedon Road and therefore down Straws Lane as in the wet conditions it was considered to dangerous.

The second coffee stop in Woodend was enjoyed by those left of the 7 on the longer ride, especially the ones who had changed out of their wet clothes. Considering the weather an enjoyable ride was had by all.
