Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 4th January 2018
11 riders rode today’s ride in cool conditions with a light southerly breeze blowing. We rode one of our normal 53km routes to Newham via Bryces Lane, Chases Lane and Clancys Lane. We started out with 8 riders with 3 late comers catching up and joining us. 2 riders rode a a shortened version of the ride by eliminating Chases Lane. The speed of the ride was good as the wind did not slow the pace much on the return ride.
Congratulations also to Kath & Hilary who climbed Straws Lane yesterday afternoon. A great achievement as it is a steep climb. Brett was also getting in some hill climbing practice and climbed Straws Lane 3 times in succession plus going over the mount.
Once back at the cafe we were joined by John H who was a late starter. We all enjoyed the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
