Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 12th June 2016
21 riders prepared to take on the conditions this morning on a very cold and frosty start to the ride but fortunately there was no wind and the skies were starting to clear.
9 riders started the longer ride and they were joined by John H just as they left the car park at the commencement of the ride, 6 rode the medium ride and 6 rode the shorter ride a total of 22 riders in all. Good to see John and Sue back after being absent for some time. Both of the rides that went along Ashbourne Road were quite cold early in the rides but as riders on the longer ride cleared Trentham the weather conditions improved, the riders on the medium ride had the same improvements as they headed along Chanters Lane towards Carlshrue and those on the shorter ride had good conditions throughout their ride. Clear skies and no wind, what more could you want apart from more warmth.
Riders on the longer ride successfully passed the crash point of the previous time we rode that circuit and by coincidence all the riders of that time were present for today’s ride.
We were also joined by Nick & a friend Peter who rode up and over the mount a bit later than our ride. It was also nice to have a coffee, chat about the rides and whatever and be able to sit outside in the sun and enjoy the company.
