Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 6th August 2017
3 members (demented souls) arrived this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were cold and windy when we started but no rain at Woodend. We were joined on the ride by Tim. He had ridden from home and was a few minutes late as he was slowed by the head wind. The 4 of us then rode a 41km modified version of the long ride due to riding into some heavy rain from Bryces Lane onward plus some light hail near Chases Lane. The biggest problem during the ride was not the rain but the standing water and puddles on the road. Needless to say we all got wet from the water splashing up as we rode.
Once back in the cafe it was good to get out of the wind, rain and into the warmth followed by something to drink and eat. Once refreshed we all departed homeward where everyone said they were headed for hot showers plus drying off cycling gear.
