Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 6th October 2016

6 riders assembled this morning in Woodend for today’s ride. Sunny conditions with a strong north wind blowing greeted the riders. They rode a 42km ride into the wind for the tail wind back. I later joined the ride as I had an prior commitment and rode a 30km loop also into the wind hoping to meet the others part way through the ride. Unfortunately this did not happen but I had only just finished and put my bike away when the 6 riders arrived back. It was very enjoyable to be able to ride in the sun for a change and not be freezing cold.

Following the ride everyone had the mandatory coffee, a good chat and then departed for home.

After the coffee break Luke and I decided to ride some more and went up Mt Macedon Rd to Straws Ln and back via Collwell’s Rd. a distance of 22km for some hill training.
