Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 11th February 2016

9 riders assembled this morning ready to tackle the strong wind and while there was considerable debate as to which direction to ride most routes into the wind involved a fair amount of climbing and the consensus was that the majority present did not want a lot of climbing today. We then rode a 54km circuit out to Bryces Lane, Newham, Chases lane and back with obviously the last 20km or so into the wind. The ride was therefore quite fast for the first portion and a bit of a slog back to Woodend but most rides recently have featured strong winds in one direction so we are getting used to riding into the wind.

The coffee break at the finish was welcome and after a rest everyone went their way home.
