Sunday Social Ride – Kyneton – 5th November 2017
25 riders assembled in Kyneton this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cloudy with a strong southerly wind blowing, which gave way to sunshine by the end of the rides. 10 riders rode the longer ride, 12 the medium ride and the remaining 3 the short ride.
As the ride commenced with a strong tail wind one Muppet (Me) in the medium/ short ride group decided to try and improve a Strava segment time to Malmsbury and the group averaged 28.8kph out . (New PB time. yeea) Other riders in the group on Strava would also have achieved PB’s as well. The ride split into two groups at the end of Youngs Road where the rides parted in different directions. Once we were on the climb up Shepherds Hill average speeds quickly came back to more normal speeds. From the top of the hill back to Kyneton we enjoyed a assisting tail wind all the way back. Riders on the long ride also had similar conditions except they had a longer ride into the head wind before having the tail wind back to Kyneton. As a result all rides were ridden at a fast pace.
Everyone was then together back at the cafe where we enjoyed the usual noise, chatter before heading home.
