Thursday Ride – Woodend – 29th November 2018

4 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cloudy with drizzly rain and cool. Once we commenced riding and were heading down Bryces Lane the roads were completely dry with no sign of rain. We rode for most of the ride in sunshine until we were approaching Woodend on the return, we then rode into similar conditions to what we had at the start of the ride.

I unfortunately had a puncture on the way down Bryces Lane after hitting a fair size rock on the road with fogged up glasses and remnants of rain on the lenses. After replacing the tube and rejoining the rest of the ride we all continued on our merry way.

We rode out normal 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, then to Chases Lane and back at Batters Lane. We had a tail wind for the way out and unfortunately a head back from Batters Lane.

Once back at the cafe it was into the warmth for the usual refreshments and chatter before heading home.
