7 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cold with a thick fog in Woodend and a southerly wind blowing. The sun was starting to break through the clouds as we began to start the ride. Once we reached Newham we rode out of the foggy weather and then enjoyed sunshine for the remainder of the ride.
5 riders rode our usual 53km route to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Rd, Chases Lane & Batters Lane back to Woodend, 2 riders shortened the ride by not eliminating Chases Lane and riding back to Woodend.
Once back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments sitting in the sun before heading home.
