Thursday Social Ride – Woodend – 25th January 2018

12 riders assembled in Woodend for this mornings ride. Weather conditions were overcast with a northerly wind blowing. As we commenced to ride the skies cleared and the temperature increased quickly.

We rode one of our normal 53km loops to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Rd, Chases lane and back along Batters Lane.

4 riders opted not to ride the full distance due to time constraints and eliminated the loop down Chases Lane and rode a distance of approx 40km’s. The wind was beginning to strengthen by the time we reached Batters Lane¬† however by this time we had a tail wind back to Woodend. By the finish of the ride temperatures had increased significantly.

Once back at the cafe in the shade where we enjoyed  refreshments and a chat before heading home.
