Sunday Social Ride – Lancefield – 22nd October 2017
22 riders arrived in Lancefield this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cool with light misty rain. Fortunately by the time the ride commenced the cloud had lifted and no further rain fell during the ride. There were also areas of sunshine during the morning. The Southerly wind helped on the outward climbing portion of the ride and the head wind return was mainly downhill.
11 riders rode the longer ride and 7 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 4 rode the shorter ride. Riders on the longer ride were also joined by Luke during the ride. We also had 2 riders who were members of the autumn skills classes riding with us on new road bikes plus 2 first time riders as well. Hopefully they will all continue riding with us and further develop their skills. All of today’s rides included a fair amount of climbing and were difficult rides especially for the new comers.
Once back at the cafe after the rides it was the usual chatter before we all departed for home.
