Sunday Ride – Woodend – 30th June 2019
16 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride with a very cold start to the ride. Temperatures were just above zero degrees as we were about to start riding. Midway through the ride the sun began to shine through at times without any warmth. One unnamed member also admitted to having a ride yesterday (Not me) and obviously got very wet.
8 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 8 rode the long ride. Weather conditions on the ride OK early as we were sheltered from the wind riding along Ashbourne Road. After that there were some head wind sections before reaching the turning point of each ride and then enjoying the tail wind back to Woodend.
Once back at the cafe it was inside into the warmth for the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home. 2 other members were also at the cafe. Unfortunately the long ride had split into 2 groups with the last 3 riders just getting back to Woodend after the others had left for home.
