Thursday Ride – Woodend – 9th August 2018

5 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cold, cloudy with a freshening north westerly wind blowing.

We rode our usual 52km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, then 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and back commencing at Batters Lane. The ride out to Batters Lane was mainly into the wind and starting to strengthen and once we started on the way back to Woodend we had the benefit of the tail wind. Due to the light wind early and the wind getting stronger on the way back the ride speed was good.

Once back into the cafe it was into the warmth for refreshments before we all headed home.
