Thursday night Chain Gang - 12th July

Hi All I don't think I'll be around on Thursday night this week so no chain gang (unless somebody else wants to organise one). As an alternative please do a hard progressive session to mimic the efforts of the chain gang: 10 mins warm up, easy pedalling 5 x 1 min progressively harder, up one gear every minute 5 minutes steady then the main session 25 minutes at 75% max heart rate, if you don't have a heart rate monitor think a bit harder than a group ride but easier than a time trial 20 minutes at 80%, ideally up 1 gear 15 minutes at 85% +, think 10 mile time trial 10 mins easy pedalling to recover Enjoy and hope to see you Saturday Barry

Club Ride Saturday 7th July

As the weather forecast for tomorrow is light rain I’ve decided to keep the plan for the Saturday ride flexible. The ride will start from Brock at 0900 as usual. We’ll head out towards Burley, turn left towards Setthorns, Sway War Memorial, Pilley, Beaulieu. If weather OK and spirits are high we’ll go up to Hill Top, Exbury, Lepe, Blackfield, Exbury, Hill Top, Beaulieu. If not head to Lyndurst via Ipley Cross for decision to continue / coffee stop / abandon. If good, Minstead, Bolderwood, Ornamental Drive, short cut to Brock or Burley Lawn, Burley, Thorney Hill, Wootton, Brock for coffee / hot towels etc. Hope to see some brave souls tomorrow, remember, we race in the race so we train in the rain! Hope to see the hardy souls tomorrow, bring a jacket. Barry
