7 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were cool, overcast with some misty rain early. During the ride the weather cleared after we left Woodend with mainly sunny breaks. It was also good to see 2 of our riders who had issues last Sunday back riding today. The member who had the broken gear cable was back riding with a new cable fitted plus the wounded warrior who had crashed was also back on the bike for the first time since Sunday.
We rode our usual 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend. We had mainly wind assistance until we turned at Batters Lane. We then had a head wind for the ride back to Woodend. The ride was typical of late being reasonably quick early with a slower ride back to Woodend.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
