Sunday Social Ride – Woodend – 22nd September 2019

25 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cool and overcast with a cold Northerly wind blowing. We also had one of our riders having his first ride in 6 months after having a hip replacement. A good effort on a ride with some difficult climbing. Another one of our members was down from sunny Queensland and was in shock with the cold weather. Get over it was the main comment.

17 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 8 rode the longer ride. Ride conditions were good as most of the ride into the wind was on downhill sections and both rides were followed by fast sections back to Woodend with the tail wind which had strengthened a little by the time rides were being completed.

All riders were together at the cafe after the ride were we enjoyed the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
