Sunday Ride – Kyneton – 29th September 2019

27 members arrived in Kyneton this morning for today’s ride. The weather was cold early with a strong southerly wind blowing. During the ride the sun began to  shine through and warmed conditions up slightly. The early part of the ride was assisted by the tail wind.

12 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 15 rode the longer ride which was in 2 groups with the faster group of 10 riders and 5 in the slower group. During the longer ride when the slower group arrived at the regrouping points they were able to see the others ahead of them in the distance. Apart from the head wind the other main problem on the ride was being attacked by magpies especially if a rider became separated from the bunch and was on their own.

Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home. Quite a few of the riders had ridden up from Woodend and they shortened the route and went back direct to Woodend without having refreshments in Kyneton.
