Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 28th April 2016

8 riders assembled this morning under grey skies with a strong North Wind blowing for today’s ride. We elected to ride a circuit of 56kms along Boundary Rd to Newham via Bryce’s Lane, Chases Lane and back along Cheveley Rd. Russell Rd. As we had a tail wind or cross tail wind for most of the ride the pace was fairly high and an enjoyable ride was had by all. We managed to dodge any rain apart from a few spits just as we turned onto 3 Chain Rd at Newham but fortunately nothing eventuated, which was just as well as most if not all of the riders did not have any rain gear in there jersey pockets.

A welcome coffee break was had by all after the ride which was then followed by some members checking out a circuit on grass that could be ridden on road bikes. The instigator must have a cyclo cross fetish but no names will be mentioned.
