Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 21st September 2017

4 riders arrived in Woodend this morning to tackle the conditions. The weather was a little cool with a strong north wind blowing. Also good to see Bruno back riding with us again. We rode a 42km version of one of our usual routes. Due to the strong wind we bypassed going into Chases Lane and rode back to Woodend along Cheveley Road. Fortunately once we rode onto 3 Chain Road we either had a cross tail wind or a direct tail wind for the remainder of the ride back to Woodend.

Once out of the head wind the speed of the ride increased and a good average was maintained over the ride. By the time the ride had finished the weather had warmed nicely.

Back at the cafe it was good to sit out in the sun having refreshments before heading home.
