Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 25th August 2016

8 riders assembled in Woodend this morning under clear skies for today’s ride with a Southerly wind blowing. As the members wanted an easy ride we rode out Boundary Rd, Bryces Ln, Newham and back via Carlshrue. A distance of just over 40km. The only problem during the ride was the cross head wind along 3 Chain Road and the inevitable head wind back to Woodend.

The tail wind at the start of the ride made for excellent speed early that slowed toward the finish. We also had a few spots of rain early in the ride that quickly disappeared.

Once back in the cafe everybody enjoyed the warmth inside, the refreshments and a good chat before heading homeward.
