For those training for races or just wanting to get faster, the Tuesday night chaingang is the perfect opportunity. Meeting for 7.00pm 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.
