Sunday Ride – Woodend – 6th May 2018

38 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cool with the sun shining at the start of the ride. Conditions soon warmed up into a great morning for a ride. One rider was unfortunately not feeling well and had to return home.

5 riders rode a modified version of the medium ride by eliminating the climb up Mt Macedon Road, 18 rode the medium ride and the remaining 14 rode the long ride. 3 riders on the long ride continued up the Burke & Wills track for a approx 100km ride. As the weather conditions were a light head wind early and a tail wind back to Woodend  all rides were brisk. One rider on the long ride had the misfortune to have a puncture on a new tyre.

Everybody except the 3 riding the 100km were together at the cafe for some of the time. The riders on the modified medium ride were commencing to leave as the riders on the long ride were getting back. The usual chatter and refreshments were enjoyed before we all headed homeward.
