8 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’ ride. The weather was cold and frosty with the sun shining and the wind beginning to strengthen. As the sun was shining when we started the temperature warmed up during the ride.
We rode our usual 52km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, Chases Lane and Batters Lane back to Woodend. The first part of the ride was into the wind but mainly down hill . With the tail wind from the end of Chases Lane back, the return to Woodend was faster and the overall ride speed was good.
Once back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
