6 members arrived in Woodend this morning for today’s ride. The weather was overcast with a light wind and low cloud. As we commenced riding the cloud lowered and we rode in drizzly rain until we reached Newham. As we left Newham the wind started to pick up and blew the low cloud away. The sun came out around Batters Lane and we rode nearly all the way back to Woodend before we encountered some more low cloud and drizzle.
It was good to see our intrepid member back from his 5 weeks plus gravel ride in he wilds of South Australia.
We rode our usual 53km ride to Newham via Bryces Lane, 3 Chain Road, Chases Lane and turning at Batters Lane for the ride back to Woodend. Apart from the rain early and wet roads once the sun came out it was a pleasant ride.
Back at the cafe it was the usual chatter and refreshments before we all headed home.
