8 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. 5 lady members also had a separate ride this morning as a warm up for a ride they are doing. The weather was warm with a strong north easterly wind blowing.
We rode our usual Thursday ride out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and turning for the ride back to Woodend at Batters Lane. The ride out to Batters Lane featured mainly into the wind with some sections a cross tail wind. On the ride out to Bryces Lane at a spot where there is a known attacking magpie the other riders let me go first and when I was attacked by the magpie they had a good laugh behind me. With friends like that who needs enemies. Once we reached Batters Lane it was then a good tail wind ride all the way back to Woodend.
Back at the cafe it was sitting in the sun enjoying the chatter and refreshments before heading home.
