7 riders arrived in Woodend this morning to tackle the conditions. Very cold with low cloud and the wind starting to rise. We rode a 45k loop out to Carlshrue via Anderson Road and back along Central Road and Ashbourne Road. As we rode out of Woodend the sun began to shine and riding improved except for the fact we were now riding into a head wind until we reached Central Road before starting to get the tail wind. Once in Ashbourne Road the wind had then became a direct tail wind all the way back to Woodend. Very nice.
It was a still cold and damp in Ashbourne Road because we were under the trees for most of the way.
We arrived back in Woodend much warmer than when we started after an excellent ride and headed to the cafe for refreshments. After the usual chit chat everybody headed home.
