Sunday Ride – Woodend – 23rd December 2018

32 riders arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were the best we have had for some weeks with a warm morning and the sun shining and only a light breeze. The wind seemed to be an assisting wind for the most part resulting in fast times being set on the rides. We also had 2 first time riders with the club this morning.

12 riders commenced on the longer ride, 18 started the medium ride and 2 rode the short ride. During the ride 2 riders on the medium ride decided to continue on and complete the long ride and a further 2 cut the medium ride short. 1 rider who had time commitments and the other who had a mechanical problem which meant a walk back to the start. Fortunately he had only ridden about 2 to 3km by the time the issue occurred That left 14 riders on the long ride, 14 on the medium ride and 2 on the short ride.

Once back at the cafe it was most of the riders together who enjoyed the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home.
