10 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cold, overcast with a strengthening North Wind. As we commenced riding the skies began to clear and we had mainly sunshine for the remainder of the ride.
We rode our normal 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend. 4 members decided to ride the 40km distance by eliminating the Chases Lane loop. The early part of the ride was a head wind into the northerly until we reached Batters Lane. We then had the tail wind for the ride back to Woodend.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
