DCV Thursday Training Ride

DCV Thursday Training Ride

https://www.plotaroute.com/route/174126

28 mile ride starting from the rowing club, not to long and not to short! Now that it’s lighter and we can actually see where everyone is we’ll be looking to start running a chain gang type format. we’re gonna keep it as one group for now and see how it goes, if two groups naturally form then great we’ll have a two group ride.. we’ve all ridden together quite a bit now so we all know who to sit with and what wheels to sit on etc so should work quite well.

Please remember this is a training ride, so no hybrid or cross bikes now, most guys have broke the summer beast out by now, so lets keep it road bikes all round. The ride will be around 16-20 mph depending on what groups form etc

Road etiquette – Can we all make sure we’re pointing/shouting out holes, parked cars, oncoming cars, half off if needed and please NO half wheeling! it’s super dangerous! No one wants a crash on their expensive summer bikes. Also I shouldn’t have to say this but no more than two abreast! I’ve seen people 3 abreast on previous rides, single out where need be and wave traffic through if the roads clear ahead. Lets make this ride work properly and draw some new members in!
