8 riders assembled this morning on a day that was totally different to the last few Thursday mornings in Woodend for our rides. Lovely sunshine with only a slight breeze and everyone welcomed the chance to not have to wear 3 layers plus wind or rain vests except Pene who had already been out for an earlier ride and was wearing a nice high-vis pink wind vest. Also with school holidays Nick was riding as was Andrew who had down time from work.
We rode a 53k loop out to Bryces Lane, Newham, Chases Ln and back via Batters Lane. Conditions were ideal however the breeze had become a little stronger than when we started but not any where near the strength of the previous days so the ride back into Woodend was not overly taxing.
It was then nice to sit out in the sun to enjoy our coffees.
