Well done to all 8 riders at this evenings chaingang.
It was fast tonight... 23.3 mph average over the hour, and everyone getting a good workout :twisted:
It took 10-15 mins before the rhythm settled into a smooth rotation with some excellent close-group riding. There was increased communication this week which helped keep things together.
Some riders made good use of taking a lap or two out which is great... it meant riders of different fitness levels could take part.
Hope you all enjoyed it too!
Cheers, Ken

Hi Ken,

Thank for organising this, I really enjoyed it, good crack and good training.
