Sunday Ride – Woodend – 9th September 2018
27 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cloudy with a freshening North Westerly wind blowing. It was nice to be a little warmer than lately and not to have multiple layers to protect from the cold.
6 riders rode the longer ride and the remaining 20 rode the medium ride or modified versions of the ride with 1 rider riding the short ride. The numbers on the long ride were less than normal with many riders having later commitments and who rode the medium ride instead. 6 riders rode the modified version and bypassed the climb up Mt Macedon Road and instead went direct to Newham via Bryces Lane. Riders on the medium and short ride joined up at Cobb & Co Road and rode back to Woodend together. The wind was a head wind riding along Don’s Road and 3 Chain Road which then changed into a nice tail wind all the way back to Woodend.
Riders were all together for refreshments and the usual chatter at the cafe before heading home.
