10 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were very cold and the question was whether to rug up or not. Riders wore a variety of long knicks, arm warmers and wind vests to protect against the cold. We rode one of our regular 53km routes out to Newham via Bryces Lane, Chases Lane and back via Batters Lane. As the ride progressed the wind began to strengthen and when we turned back to Woodend at Batters Lane we rode into a very strong head wind. The ride was enjoyable even in the colder conditions.
Once back at the cafe it was warm clothes on and not a very long time before riders were heading homeward.
