Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 14th July 2016

8 members turned out this morning for todays ride in very cold, windy but fine conditions. Temperature readings on cycle computers were plus or minus a few degrees around zero, so whichever ones were correct it was still very cold. We rode a 57km circuit along one of our regular rides out to Bryces Lane, Newham, Chases Ln into Kyneton and back via Cobb & Co Rd, Clancys Lane. We had a head wind basically all the way to Kyneton but once we headed back to Woodend we enjoyed a strong tail wind which made for a good ride back.

Unfortunately Jennie had to return to Woodend from Newham as she was suffering from a cracked rib and Roscoe accompanied her back so she was not on her own. The remaining 6 continued on the ride where 5 of the riders went on into one of the cafe’s in Kyneton for a coffee and a warm up and I continued on my own back to Woodend so I did not have to stop and then have to restart stiff legs ( Old Age)

Everybody arrived back inĀ  Wooden at nearly the same time so another trip into the cafe was needed for a further warmup and a chat before heading home.
