Thursday Night Chain Gang - 23rd August

Chain gang will be on as usual tomorrow. I reckon we've only got another couple of weeks where we can start at 1900. Please make sure you've got lights on the bike and wear something bright as we've also got some low sun to deal with.

Usual start place, St Saviours Church, Burley Road, Brockenhurst.

Hope to see you there

Thursday Night Chain Gang - 16th August

Usual plan tomorrow. Meet at Brock all warmed up for a prompt start at 1900. 45-50 minute blast around the Burley loop with variations of through and off. Judging by the way the nights are drawing in worth making sure you've got at least a rear light and if you're riding home from Brock afterwards time to start putting on thee front light and wearing something reflective.

Hope to see a good turnout tomorrow.

Thursday Night Chain Gang - 9th August

At last the weather is going to break and we're promised 23 degrees on a Thursday night, just like we had at the end of March for the first one!

Start time will be 1900 from St Saviours Church in Brock.

Newbies welcome, speed depends on who's there but there is a mid ride short cut for those that need a break.

Hope to see a good turnout.

Club Ride - Saturday 11th August

A 62 mile loop partially in the forest and partially out this week.

I've tried to follow Mike's lead and do it via google maps. Hope this works for everybody. I'll try and convert to a GPX file for all the Garmin users.

Hope to see you Saturday. If you want to join along the route we should be going at 17-18MPH so you can work out where and when to join. In case you can't see the direction on google maps we'll do the route clockwise so Brockenhurst, Burley, Bransgore etc.
