12 hardy souls braved the cold conditions for today’s ride. The weather was very cold with a very strong south westerly wind blowing and the ever present threat of rain.
5 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 7 rode the long ride. We also had one first time rider with us. The medium ride did not have any rain. The long ride encountered some light rain on two occasions. One rider decided to put his rain jacket with the second shower and the rain stopped straight away. The early part of the rides were into a head wind, then a middle section enjoyed a tail wind and the final short section back into the wind.
Riders were together at the cafe for the usual chatter and refreshments before heading home. Some riders did not stop at the cafe as they decided it was too cold to be outside having refreshments.
