Narberth fast group ride (chaingang) Wednesdays 2021

March 9, 2020

Starting TBC once rules allow unlimited group size and unlimited household mixing. Meet Narberth Cross (Jesse Road/Landsker Stores) 6.30pm Wednesdays, or Boars Head Templeton around 7pm, for 2 laps of Templeton – Martletwy. Much more than 10 riders means we’ll likely split into 2 groups. Distances: 28 miles from Narberth, 24 from Templeton (12 miles per lap). This is not a club activity and cyclists from all local clubs are welcome, as are visitors. 

Chaingang is just group riding together practicing ‘through-and-off’. Don’t worry if you don’t have prior road racing or fast group riding experience, but come prepared to be told what to (and not) do, and for it to hurt at the end. Have a look at this GCN video. Ride smoothly, no surging or swerving, no overlapping wheels and point out potholes and other approaching road dangers on the front. 

Remember, the whole point is to ride smart rather than hard, saving energy by riding close behind other riders and not surging at the front. If/when you get dropped, no stress. Just turn round and join back in when the group returns. Road bikes only, no tri-bars or TT bikes. ROUTE CICK HERE

Short sharp ride with a few “legends”

Corona specific: If you feel anything other than 100 % healthy, please do not come. Please be thoughtful for your fellow cyclists in regard to snot management!  This is not an ‘organised’ ride and there is no organiser. It is up to you if you want to ride. All riders should obtain personal 3rd party liability insurance before taking part. Joining BC or Cycling UK (CTC) gives you this.
