Sunday Ride – Woodend – 28th April 2019

23 riders assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cold, cloudy with a strong Westerly wind blowing. Most riders were wearing rain jackets to protect from the wind.

2 riders rode the short ride, 14 rode the medium ride and the remaining 7 road the long ride. Due to the westerly wind the medium and long ride were difficult early as both rides were into the wind. Eventually both rides had a tail wind and riding conditions were much better from then on. The favourable wind on the way back to Woodend meant ride speeds improved from then.

the medium and shot rides were together at the cafe and the long ride was just getting back as the last of the members were leaving for home. The usual refreshments and chatter were enjoyed before we headed home.
