3 riders arrived in Woodend to tackle today’s weather conditions. The morning was cold and windy with a strong Southerly wind blowing. All riders wore rain jackets early in the ride to protect from the cold wind.
We rode our usual 53 km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Rd, Chases Lane and turning for the ride back to Woodend at Batters Lane. At this point we were riding directly back into the wind for most of the way back. The speed of the ride then dropped significantly.
By the time we reached Woodend the weather had warmed up slightly and we then enjoyed the chatter and refreshments at the cafe before leaving for home.
