Sunday Social Ride – Kyneton – 29th May 2016

20 riders prepared to tackle the conditions from Kyneton this morning, very cold with some sunshine and a light breeze. We were joined by one other part way during the ride.

2 members rode the short circuit, 12 the medium circuit and the remaining 7 the longer circuit with 5 of them having ridden up from Woodend making their ride in excess of 100km. It was also good to see Christine back riding with us again plus 3 of our riders who compete in Veterans races were all placed in events yesterday. Congratulations and a good effort from the three of them.

Apart from the cold conditions all the rides were conducted at a good riding pace but unfortunately those members who were riding with either short fingered gloves or shoes without booties were soon complaining that the feet or hands were freezing. I suspect orders with be placed for the items needed for the cold conditions.

The time spent at the cafe was a little limited as we were all outside and after everyone had their mandatory drinks we soon departed for warmer conditions. A good ride was had by all.
