35 members assembled in Woodend this morning for todays ride. The weather was overcast with low cloud and light drizzle and a southerly wind blowing. Not the most inviting conditions for a ride. We also has a new member having his first ride with the club. Once we had ridden away from Woodend the skies lightened and the sun began to shine for the most part of the ride.
18 riders rode the medium ride and the remaining 17 rode the long ride. The rides were conducted at a good pace with the tail wind early and the head wind section kept maintained a good speed. On arrival at Ashbourne Road for the ride back to Woodend the light drizzle restarted for some of the way.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
