Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 4th October 2015

17 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for the first ride of the daylight savings season. Don’t know if the normal riders that were absent missed the change of time on their clocks or had Grand Final Itis. The ride was joined by Kristian in Ashbourne Road and later by Dave near Kyneton. 11 riders rode the shorter route and the remaining 7 plus Dave the longer route. As the weather was quite mild with a slight head wind while traveling in the direction of Trentham and basically a tail wind for the rest of the ride both rides were conducted at a fast pace, and with Dave & Roscoe not riding to Trentham the group on the longer ride were able to ride through Trentham without the mandatory coffee stop.

It was nice to be able to ride without having to haveĀ  multiple layers of clothing to ward off the cold and instead have to put on sunscreen for protection. Yeah for the warmer weather approaching. Finally a good time was had by all over coffee at the usual spot.
