6 riders tackled the conditions in Woodend this morning. The day was overcast with a southerly wind blowing. We rode a 58km loop out Boundary Rd, Batters Ln, Chases Ln and back via Newham, Bryces Ln. The start of the ride to Kyneton was with a very fast pace due to the tail wind. The ride slowed down when we turned to come back to Woodend and into the exposed open country and the inevitable head wind. The ride pace was still good even though the head wind slowed us down. The portions where we had some shelter made the return ride back bearable.
Once safely in the warmth of the cafe everyone enjoyed a warming drink before heading home tired but happy.
