Sunday Club Ride – Woodend – 8th March 2020

24 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cool and overcast with a Southerly wind blowing. As the ride progressed the wind began to strengthen and the temperature did not warm up much as the cloud cover remained.

2 riders rode a modified short ride, 15 rode the medium ride and the remaining 7 rode the longer ride. All riders rode up Mt Macedon Road to Straws Lane with one rider tackling the climb for the first time. Two riders on the medium ride then rode the descent down Straws Lane for the first time. The wind direction meant a fast first portion of the rides followed by a head wind back to Woodend.

All riders were together at the cafe for the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
