Sunday Ride – Kyneton – 24th June 2018

Sixteen riders assembled in Kyneton this morning . Conditions were cold but fine, with a moderate southerly wind. It was noted that numbers were down due to several members having fled to try their luck cycling in Europe. Five riders set out on the long ride, with one latecomer bolting to catch up, which he did shortly before the Burke and Wills track. It was the first time out the Sidonia road for two of the riders and much mention was made about the splendour of the scenery.

One rider on the medium ride skipped the coffee shop and returned to Woodend, from whence she had rode. All long distance riders shortened their ride due to the distinct aroma of coffee detected near the corner of Chases Lane. The short distance riders were well and truly finished refreshments by the time the last riders returned to join the medium group in the warmth of the coffee shop. Three riders then returned to Woodend on their bikes with one intrepid fellow riding all the way back to Gisborne.
