9 members assembled in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. Weather conditions were sunny early with a strong Westerly wind blowing. As the ride commenced the weather began to cloud over and remained much the same for the rest of the ride.
We rode our usual 53km loop out to Newham via Bryces lane, 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and turning for the ride back to Woodend at Batters Lane. We had a head wind for most of the way out to Batters Lane then a tail wind back to Woodend. The ride pace was fairly quick considering the amount of head wind riding with the average speed being over 23kmph.
Once back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we headed home.
