Thursday Ride – Woodend – 3rd January 2019

9 riders assembled this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cool early but soon began to warm up as we commenced riding.

One member had the misfortune to have a puncture just as we were about to start. After replacing the tube with a new one, this tube would not inflate. This meant a further tube was used and this tube inflated correctly. A trip was made to the bike shop to get some replacement tubes to carry as all spares had been used.

We rode our usual 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Rd to Chases Lane and back to Woodend at Batters Lane. We had favorable winds for most of the ride with a head wind for part of the way back to Woodend.

Once back at the cafe it was the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home.
