11 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were ideal with warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine and no threat of rain. We rode a 44km loop out to Carlshrue via Anderson Rd, then on to Central Rd, Chanters Ln and back via Ashbourne Rd. The wind began to pick up as we rode out to Carlshrue but as that portion of the route was mainly downhill the pace was still brisk.
Once we then turned to head back to Woodend we enjoyed a nice tail wind all the way back. One rider had the misfortune to cut a tyre which necessitated a rider having to return to Woodend and drive his car back to collect him and bike.
Everyone then enjoyed a refreshing break and a good chat at the cafe before heading home.
