20 members arrived in Kyneton this morning for today’s ride. The weather was very cloudy with rain threatening for the first club ride of the year.
14 members rode the medium ride and the remaining 6 rode the long ride. Riders on the medium ride encountered a heavy shower as they turned into Malmsbury East Road. Riders stopped at the regrouping point to put rain jackets with some of the riders stopping when the shower started to don jackets. The rain had stopped by the time we commenced riding again and we had no more for the remainder of the ride. 4 riders decided not to ride the medium ride and rode the short ride instead. Once the remainder topped Shepherds Hill Road the sun came out and the roads dried very quickly. Riders on the long ride were lucky and missed the rain entirely.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
