7 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were the best for many days with the sun shining and a light breeze. During the ride the wind speed picked up before the turning point to ride back to Woodend which meant a tail wind for way back.
5 riders rode our normal 53km loop to Newham via Bryces Lane, then 3 Chain Rd, Chases Lane and turning for the ride back to Woodend at Batters Lane. The other 2 riders rode the shorter 45km loop minus the Bryces Lane section. Most of the ride was on dry roads and bikes will most likely not need cleaning as has been the case for the majority of rides lately.
Once back in Woodend at the cafe and into the warmth it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
