Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 16th June 2016

4 riders arrived in Woodend to tackle the conditions this morning. Fine with a very strong and cold north wind blowing. We were also joined by a rider who is fairly new to the area and was out having a ride on his own. We rode a 40k loop out to Bryces Lane, Newham, Carlshrue and back as by the time we were at Chases Lane most riders only wanted to get out of the cold so we rode back via Cobb & Co Road and enjoyed the tail wind back to Woodend. The ride was still enjoyable even allowing for the cold except for the member who did not have shoe covers on and ended up with very cold feet.

Then it was everybody into the cafe and sitting close to the heater to get warmed up. After the usual discussions we then went our separate ways
