5 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. We were greeted by another sunny morning with a strong cold Southerly wind blowing. All riders wore jackets to protect from the cold wind.
We rode our usual 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain road, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend. 2 riders modified the ride by not riding 3 Chain Road and returned to Woodend from Newham. Once we reached Batters Lane it was a direct head wind all the way back with only a few spots where we sheltered slightly from the wind.
Back at the cafe where we were joined by Michael C who has been unable to ride for some weeks and the usual refreshments and chatter followed before we all headed home.
