Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 2nd July 2015

4 riders assembled this morning and an apology from Lawrie who fortunately for him had other commitments. A new rider joined the group today and definitely got a baptism under fire.  Riders left Woodend in fine sunny conditions which did not last.

As the wind was predicted to be a strong south westerly the ride went south to Macedon then up Waterfalls road, Baringo and back. Unfortunately when we started to descend Mt Macedon a rain squall came in and it was very wet until we started down from Baringo when the sun came out for a while. The ride back to Woodend was cold wet and a lot of water on the road. Our new first time rider said he would be back next week.

At the end of the ride 4 bedraggled riders enjoyed a coffee before heading home to dry out. The lady in the coffee shop commented we must be mad and I replied it certainly helps at times. Anyhow being the eternal optimist we can only hope for a better day the next time.
