Usual Wednesday Chaingang route.

2 Laps and a sprint finish to Risley Traffic lights with the option of a reverse lap at the end.

Aim: To ride smoothly as a chaingang, with a reasonably consistent amount of effort.

Starting from Greenfingers at bottom of Cator Lane at 7.30 and picking up along route out toward motorway bridge at Long Eaton.

The following link shows how a chaingang should be done...

PS. It will be dark not long after we set off. Bring lights.



Discussion


If my wife arrives home by 19:25 then I'm in.

If not then I'll be getting some dark wet miles in alone and might join in the 2nd lap.

Is there mudguard etiquette? My wheels are naked.
