Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 4th February 2016

9 riders assembled this morning under grey skies with a very strong southerly wind blowing. We rode a 43.5km circuit to Macedon then Baringo loop to Ferrier Rd and back via Black Forest Drive to make sure we were riding the last portion back into Woodend with a tail wind. As luck would have it the plan worked out with no rain and a mainly sheltered ride through Baringo and a lovely tail wind back to Woodend. A couple of members dropped back to keep me company on the climb up Black Forest Drive and then told me to go to the front and ride my pace on the downhill section to Woodend and then said I was going to fast so I proceeded to speed up more. No names mentioned but said member has some tattoos which made for some laughter back at the coffee shop.

A good ride was had by all and it was nice to have a ride and not get wet as one foolish person did the previous day. Again no names mentioned but it was the writer of this post.
