Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 24th November 2016

9 riders assembled this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were cold with a brisk southerly wind blowing. A major change from the warmth of the last weekend. We chose a flatter ride as the bulk of the members riding today had just returned from climbing mountains in Bright. We rode one of our usual rides of 46km out via Newham, Chases Lane, Batters Lane back to Woodend.

With the tail wind out to Batters Lane the pace of the ride was reasonably fast early. That changed considerably on the way back to Woodend as for the most part we were riding into the wind.

Once back in Woodend it was nice to enjoy the company in the comforts of the warmth inside the cafe. After everybody had their drinks we all departed for home.
