Sunday Social Ride – Kyneton – 21st August 2016

Sitting in my car this morning, the weather is cold with drizzly rain thinking no one will turn up for today’s ride. Wrong again. Finally 10 riders turned up for the ride including one first timer with the club. 4 of the riders decided to head for the cafe and not ride. They had a nice warm and dry time over coffee before heading home.

4 riders rode an amended route of 40km to the top of Metcalfe Hill and back via Malmsbury, Youngs Road due to the conditions expected on the published circuit. The remaining 2 riders rode the published short ride.

On the medium ride once passed Malmsbury East Road the drizzle stopped and did not return until riders headed along Malmsbury East Road. Once turning toward Young’s Road the rest of the ride back to the velodrome was without any rain. Damp roads with puddles were the main issue on both rides.

3 of the six riders then headed for the cafe for the usual chat before heading home.
