Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 30th November 2017

3 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were hot with a freshening North Easterly wind. To avoid the heat we rode a 55km modified version of our normal route. We rode direct to Newham, Carlshrue, Central Road and back along Ashbourne Road with┬áthe latter part of the ride mainly in the shade of the trees.

Once we started heading towards Carlshrue we enjoyed a tail wind for most of the remainder of the ride. With the favorable breeze the ride was conducted at a good pace.

Once back at the cafe it was inside in the air conditioning. A good chance to cool down from the heat on the ride. Following refreshments it was then back out into the heat and homeward.
