3 members assembled this morning with rain falling but by the time we were ready to start riding the rain had stopped and we had no further rain during the ride. As we were about to depart another 2 members arrived giving us 5 riders and they joined up with us during the ride. The roads were a little damp for the first few km’s but became completely dry by about the half way point of the ride. We managed to ride in sunshine for the most part and conditions were good for this time of the year.
We rode one of our usual circuits of 47km to Newham, Chases Lane, Batters Lane and back, mainly to keep away from wet roads under trees and whilst we had a head wind out to the end of Chases Lane we enjoyed a nice tail wind all the way back to Woodend which made the return trip good fun.
After the usual good time at the cafe we all headed home and by this time the rain had returned which was either good judgement or mugs luck.
