7 members arrived in Woodend for this mornings ride. The weather conditions were overcast with a strengthening southerly wind blowing. As we rode out of Woodend the sky cleared and we enjoyed sunshine for the remainder of the ride.
We rode our usual 53km circuit out to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain road, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend. One rider shortened the ride by not riding the Chases Lane loop as he had to be back home early. The first part was mainly a tail wind out to Batters Lane. We then encountered a head wind for the ride back to Woodend. These weather conditions have been the same for many months. Head wind out followed by a tail wind back.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home.
