Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 29th October 2017

33 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Another excellent number of members riding now. The weather conditions were warm with a strong north wind blowing which meant a strong tail wind back to Woodend for the latter part of the ride.

12 riders rode the longer the ride and the remaining 21 all rode out together to the point where the medium and the short rides separated. The ride then split into 18 on the medium ride and 3 on the short ride. The 3 riders on the short ride was one of our mum’s with her 2 children who had just completed the club’s skills training course. We also had 2 members who had their first ride last week with us and turned up again today for some more punishment.

With the tail wind back to Woodend all rides were conducted at a brisk pace even with the amount of climbing at the finish in Ashbourne Road.

Once back at the cafe it was the usual good chatter before we all headed homeward.
