Sunday Social Ride – Woodend & Macedon – 27th November 2016

20 riders assembled for this mornings climb to Mt Macedon Cross. Conditions were sunny with a stiff Southerly wind blowing. The mountain top was shrouded in cloud with blue sky above. 10 riders climbed the mount from Woodend, 7 from Macedon and the remaining 3 rode the short ride.  Pat also rode with us for the first time for many months. All 10 riders reached the top of the climb including Sharon who achieved her second major climb over the last 2 weekends. 3 others also rode the climb for the first time  An excellent effort for those riders.

A rest at the cafe atop the mount in the warmth was enjoyed by all together with some of the members who climbed from the Gisborne side. After refreshments we tackled the descent in very cold conditions until we rode back into the sunshine.

A further cafe stop was then held in Woodend before we all headed home.
