Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 18th August 2016

6 riders prepared to tackle the conditions this morning in Woodend,  warmer with a very strong wind blowing. We rode the reverse direction to last week of ride of 44km.

We went along Ashbourne Road to Chanters Lane, Central Rd and back via Cobb & co Road and Boundary Road. The wind  in Ashbourne Road was quite strong but we were sheltered mainly by the trees. We then had a head wind out to Carlshrue Central Road and a cross tail wind or a full tail wind all the way back to Woodend.The ride back to Woodend was fast due to the strength of the wind.

Upon arrival  back in Woodend we all headed to the cafe for some refreshments and a chat before heading homeward. A good ride was had by all even with the wind.
