Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 7th April 2016

6 riders assembled this morning under cool conditions with clear skies and sunshine , a most unusual occurrence for Woodend of late but very welcome.Soon after the start of the ride David R had the misfortune to have a broken spoke on one of his wheels and his bike was not able to be ridden due to the buckle in the wheel and he had to return to Woodend. The spoke has since been fixed and he is now ready to roll again.

It was also good to see Luke riding with us again after his recent misfortune and even though not 100% recovered he was still able to ride at his normal fast speed. The remaining 5 riders then rode a 57km loop out to Carlshrue, Lancefield, Newham and back. Apart from the wind it was great to ride in the sunshine especially after the rain of the previous day.

An enjoyable ride was had by all and the coffee at the finish was very welcome.
