Thursday Social Ride – Woodend 22nd October 2015

Two riders chose to venture out in drizzling rain with the hope that conditions might improve, which they did once north of Hanging Rock. After the descent from Bryce’s Lane the skies cleared and the roads were dry towards Newham and along Don’s Lane. Discouraged by the head wind, we shortened the trip via a detour along Mowbray’s Rd which included perhaps a kilometre of firm gravel to Anderson’s Rd, up to the roundabout and back into Woodend where the weather was the same as when we left – damp!. Not withstanding, both riders agreed that the effort was truly worthwhile.
