14 riders assembled in Woodend this morning on a sunny day with a very strong north easterly wind blowing. We were also joined by another member during the ride and 2 of today’ riders were riding with us for the first time including one rider down from Sydney.
We rode our normal Thursday loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Rd, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend.
4 riders rode modified versions of the ride with 3 eliminating the Bryces Lane Loop and the other eliminating the Chases Lane loop. The ride out to Batters Lane was either directly into the wind or sections of cross tail wind followed by a fast ride back to Woodend being blown along by the wind.
All riders were together back at the cafe sitting in the sun for the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home
