5 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. The morning was overcast, cold with a strengthening northerly wind blowing. At about the mid point of the ride the sky began to lift and we had sections of sunshine for the remainder of the ride. We also had one of our riders with us this morning after an absence of some months.
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. Most of the ride out to Batters Lane was into the wind. As we turned to ride back to Woodend we then picked up the tail wind for most of the way back.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we headed home.
