Sunday Ride – Kyneton – 20th January 2019

28 riders arrived in Kyneton this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were warm with a strong Southerly wind blowing. Today’s ride was in 2 parts with a fast section out to Malmsbury with the tail wind, a harder section to the top of Shepherds Hill or for the longer ride the Pig and Whistle into the wind followed by another tail wind section back to Kyneton.

16 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 12 rode the longer ride. Everyone enjoyed the tail wind sections and not so the head winds. We had some riders climbing Shepherds Hill for the first time and all riders made it to the top without having to stop.

Once back at the cafe the early finishers were starting to leave when the riders on the longer were beginning to arrive. It was the usual refreshments and chatter before we all headed home. Good to see Ken S back on deck at the cafe also.
