*** Tuesday Chaingang is BACK!!! ***
For those training for races or just wanting to get faster, the Tuesday night chaingang is the perfect opportunity. Meeting for 6.30pm (moves to 7pm as light get's better) at the Glen gates groups of 6-8 riders leave in 5 minute intervals and form a Chaingang.

Following a set route the group keeps a high pace for just over an hour before regrouping at a pre-arranged stop. The total ride time is around 2 hours including a short neutral period, chaingang session then ride home as one group back to the Gates.
Hint - you WILL get dropped! But trying to hang on as long as you can is half the fun! However as noted all riders will re-group at the agreed place. It's not unknown for dropped riders to then group themselves and form a separate chaingang.
We also offer 'Chaingang Lite'. This allows you to develop the technique of a chaingang to those new to the concept but without the high effort level and no-one being dropped. It so far has proved very successful with many new riders progressing from chaingang lite into regular chaingangs very well.
