Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 3rd September 2015

4 riders assembled in Woodend this morning ( the usual suspects) Roscoe, Donna, Jennie and myself) on a typically Woodend morning of late, Cold, windy with the ever present threat of rain. As the skies were very black to the south of Woodend we chose to ride to Kyneton via Cheveley Rd, Batters Lane and back by Chases Lane, Newham, Bryces Lane and the Avenue of Honour, a ride of 53.5kms. Unfortunately because of the head wind the ride back from Kyneton was difficult at times in the exposed areas of the ride. However on the bright side we managed to complete the entire ride in mainly sunny conditions with no rain. As I got into my car to go home the spits of rain were evident on the windscreen. Either good judgement or mugs luck, the latter most likely.

We were joined by Lawrie and Therese in the coffee shop and it was good to see Lawrie up and about and hopefully he will be back riding with us sooner than later.

After a good chat and a chance to get warm it was time to brave the conditions and head for home.
