Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 27th April 2017

6 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were very cold with a strong southerly wind blowing. Winter has certainly arrived with a bang. Away with the summer gear and out with the winter thermals.  We rode one of our regular 52km routes out to Newham via Bryces Lane, then on to Chases Lane and back along Batters Lane. The ride was great early with the tail wind however once we reached Batters Lane the wind became a very strong head wind all the way back to Woodend. We were also met at the cafe by Roscoe who arrived after we started our ride.

Once everybody was back at the cafe it was the usual jovial company and after refreshments it was homeward bound.
