Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 15th November 2015
22 riders assembled in Woodend this morning under very cold conditions with a hint of rain but fortunately within a few kilometers of starting the ride the sun began to come through. The ride commenced with a strong tail wind but unfortunately once the group arrived at 3 Chain Road, Carlshrue the ride quickly became a battle into a strong head wind which persisted all the way to Lancefield. The ride to Don’s Road was quite fast due to the tail wind and because some riders went to the front and set a fast pace ( not me this time ) and the rest were strung out trying to catch up.
Because of the head wind only 8 riders rode to Lancefield where Dave’s mandatory coffee stop was essential part of the ride. The remaining 14 riders opted out and rode the shorter course back to Woodend via Newham.
The riders on the longer ride enjoyed a good tail wind back to Woodend from Lancefield which was followed by a second cup of coffee.
