Woodend Ride -Sunday – 29th July 2018

12 foolhardy members gathered in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cold with a strong North Westerly wind blowing. Skies were overcast with the threat of rain present.

7 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 5 rode the longer ride. Ride conditions were difficult for the first part of the ride as we were riding directly into the head wind. When we began to pick up the tail wind the ride conditions eased and the sun had begun to shine through early during the ride. 2 riders on the medium ride had punctures, both from tiny pieces of glass at totally different sections of the ride. Some light rain began to fall as the medium ride were nearly back into Woodend. The longer ride group caught the rain as they turned into Ashbourne Road.

Everyone was together back at the cafe and enjoyed the warmth and refreshments before heading home.
