Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 17th September 2017
24 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Conditions were perhaps the best for some time with the sun shining and a fairly light breeze. The good weather brought out riders who have not been riding lately. It was good to see them riding again.
4 riders rode the longer ride, 17 the medium ride and the remaining 3 the shorter ride. One of the members on the longer ride joined the ride just after the start. He was on a mission to be back home early so the ride was at a fast pace. The other members of the ride hanging on to keep up.
A rider on the medium ride enjoyed the ride so much that immediately after the ride finished he started riding the circuit for a second time. With the tail wind back to Woodend all rides were at a brisk speed. Rider numbers on the medium ride were higher than normal as some of the riders that would normally ride the longer ride were returning after being sick or had other time commitments.
The remainder of the riders were all together at the cafe and it was good to be able to enjoy the company outside in the sunshine. After completing our refreshments it was time to head homeward.
