On Sunday 21st June I took a winter ride with the Ulysses club to the Lexton pub for a roast lunch. It was clear and sunny, however, only around 6C – 8C for much of the trip. The pub did a great job of serving around 24 of us really quickly and the food was great as well.
Morning tea at Gordon.

Did I mention that it was cold? Here’s Robyn checking out ‘Tall Paul’s’ new Triumph.
All up I covered around 415kms for the day and rode some roads that I’ve never been on before. A great winter’s day out.
Between shifting house and completing a Uni course I haven’t had
much any time for riding in the past couple of months. I was planning a ride as I’d met all my obligations and as fate would have it I received a call from Geoff asking if I’d like to come for a mid week ride – so of course I jumped at it. It was a pretty cool day at around 10C – 11C for most of the ride, however, the rain held off. With the wonders of GoreTex lined gear, heated grips and some new merino wool socks and I was comfortable all day. We traveled some interesting back roads, skirting around the lakes near Colac and then dined in Camperdown at a nice bakery that was doing a very brisk trade. All up we did around 315 kms. Thanks Geoff for a great day out. I’m hanging out for the next Ulysses Club ride on Wed 17th, unfortunately the weather forecast isn’t great. It is winter I guess!
