Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 20th September 2015

19 riders assembled in Woodend this morning on a glorious day for a bike ride apart from a North Wind which was a head wind for a large part of the beginning of the ride.

7 riders rode the shorter route and the remaining 12 rode the longer route. All except one rider rode the climb up Mt Macedon Road to Straws Lane, the remaining rider did not want to ride the descent down Straws Lane and rejoined the riders on the shorter ride in Newham. The ride split at the corner of Bryces Lane and Rochford Road. The short ride heading via Newham and the longer ride continuing on to Lancefield where there was Dave’s mandatory coffee stop at the usual place. After coffee the ride continued back to Carlshrue and was ridden mainly into a cross head wind which made it difficult however it was nice to then have a decent tail wind all the way back to Woodend.

The ride back to Woodend was then followed by a further coffee stop and chit chat with some friendly ribbing of various members. A good time was had by all.
