Sunday Social Ride – Kyneton – 3rd September 2017

14 members assembled in Kyneton this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were cold with heavy misty rain falling. As we were about to commence riding the rain became even heavier with a little hail. This prompted 3 members to decide not to ride and head for the cafe. The remaining 11 riders then started on their merry way.

5 riders rode the longer ride, 2 rode modified versions of the medium ride and the remaining 4 rode the shorter ride. As we rode over the freeway out of Kyneton the rain ceased and apart from a light shower the rest of the ride was on dry roads with a fair amount of sunshine. Everyone also enjoyed the tail wind back to Kyneton.

Special mention must be made of one member who was riding in a coat more suitable for the snow fields. Good work Rob. However as he said later at least he was dry and warm. All members who rode were together back at the cafe after the ride an enjoyed the warmth and company before heading home.
