Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 11th February 2018

37 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Another excellent turnout. Weather conditions were a lot different from the last few days being cool with a strong Southerly wind blowing.

21 riders rode the longer ride, 15 rode the medium ride and 1 member rode the short ride. Riders on the longer ride split into 2 groups with the faster riders out front and the remainder following at a slower pace. All riders enjoyed the fast tail wind sections of the ride. The medium ride modified the published route to avoid Cheveley Road directly into the head wind and rode Cobb & Co road instead which is more sheltered back to Woodend.

2 of our ladies decided they were going to ride 100km this morning and had a ride before the long ride but unfortunately finished about 5km short of 100km and rode an extra 5km after the cafe stop to achieve the magic number. Great work to Pene and Kath.

Most of the riders were together at the cafe following the ride. The usual good time was enjoyed before we departed for home.
