Thursday Ride – Woodend – 11th July 2019

4 members (poor souls with nothing better to do) turned up this morning for today’s ride under very trying weather conditions. There was a very strong North Westerly wind, heavy drizzling rain and temperatures not much above zero degrees, Fortunately as we rode from Woodend the weather conditions improved slightly the further north we rode. Heading back to the finish of the ride the weather conditions changed to much the same as we left earlier.

We rode a 45km shortened version of the usual Thursday ride by eliminating the Bryces Lane section. The ride out to Batters Lane was into the strong wind being either a block head wind or a cross head wind after which we then picked up the tail wind for the return back to Woodend.

Once back at the cafe it was inside into the warmth for the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
