Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 21st january 2016

12 riders assembled this morning under grey skies with a fair bit of fog around, but as often happens when rides commence in Woodend by the time the ride had commenced the skies were lifting and the ride was conducted under very good conditions. We rode a loop up to Kyneton via Cheveley Rd and Batters Lane and returned along Chases Lane and Newham, a ride of 49km. the wind was starting to become a bit of a strong head wind as we were returning to Woodend and in the process the faster riders got split from the slower riders and both groups went to different coffee shops as our usual stop was closed this morning. By the time we worked out who was where everyone had ordered coffee’s so we ended up with 6 riders at each cafe.

A bit of a muddle ensued but everybody had an enjoyable ride and the 2 groups were together for a short time as the earlier group temporarily joined with the later group.
