9 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. The weather was nice and warm with a north easterly wind blowing. It was great to be riding without the extra layers of clothing of previous rides. The average speed of the ride was in excess of 24.3kmp. being the slowest rider and the others faster. We also had a first time rider with us who has just moved up to live in Mt Macedon.
We rode our normal 53km route out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Rd to Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend. We had a head wind for large portions of the ride out to Batters Lane and then the tail wind for the ride back to Woodend. One rider rode the 45km shortened version by eliminating the Bryces Lane loop.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home. Michael C also joined us at the cafe after having ridden up to the Cross at Mt Macedon. Obviously fully recovered and good the see him riding again.
