20 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride on a sunny morning with a light southerly wind. With the tail wind the ride was fast out to Malmsbury especially as the hills are easier when riding in the direction we were traveling. Once in Malmsbury we then enjoyed our liquid refreshments sitting in the outdoor area with hot cross buns and everyone had a good chat before we commenced the return ride to Woodend.
As we returned to Woodend the wind began to change to a northerly direction and we had an assisting wind for most of the ride back. This resulted in a fast pace for the entire ride. Nice to get a ride in without having a tail wind followed by a strong head wind for the return ride.
Once back in Woodend it was to late for a second cafe stop due to early closing so after further chatter we all headed homeward.
