8 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were ideal with the sun shining and little wind and before the heat. It was good to see John H. back riding again after missing the last 7 weeks. We rode one of our regular 52km loops out to Carlshrue via Newham and back along Batters Lane, Clancy’s Lane to Woodend. By the time we started the ride back the wind had begun to strengthen which slowed the average speed for the ride and conditions had also warmed up.
Once back at the cafe it was the usual banter and chat plus the singing of happy birthday to one of our riders. Definitely not something to brag about as there were not many good singing voices present. After everybody had their refreshments it was time to head for home.
