Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 8th October 2017

14 riders assembled this morning for today’s ride from Woodend. Weather conditions were mild with a strong wind blowing. A short rain shower had preceded the start of the ride however the ride commenced with dry roads.

7 riders rode the longer ride, 3 rode the medium and the remaining 4 rode modified versions of the medium and short rides. The strong wind made riding conditions difficult early in the ride until all groups reached the point where the wind became either a cross tail wind or direct tail wind. The speed of the ride was then a lot faster from then for the trip back to Woodend.

As the riders on the longer ride arrived back in Woodend a shower of rain started so those remaining moved into the cafe where it was dry and warm. After refreshments we all departed for home.
