The tempo group will also be along for 7 rather than 6:30. I'm assuming the forum will be updated with Norrie's input?

Hi all, I'm new to the club and heard theres a Tuesday spin. Just looking at which group I could join, could do around 20mph give or take.
Any info would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Thanks Graeme - thought that. I did it once before.
I wouldn't plan on doing it again because the road surface on Deanston is too poor. Oh, and chainganging up the Mini Braes is for mountain goats only :-).

Aye, Alan - that's normally what would be done if the wee loop was out of commission.
Deanston, Wee Braes, Thornhill to Kippen Roundabout and then in.
it's 26.5 miles, with c.700ft of climbing (all climbing in the first half of loop)

What do you mean by the big loop Graeme ? Is it Deanston and the Mini Braes ?

Also, there are roadworks on the circuit. Norrie's going to let us know re condition of road surface (at around 5pm I think) and a decision can be made about whether to do standard loop or the big one.
I'll be there at 7.
Cheers, Graeme

Just a note to say most people will be doing a 7pm start I understand. I think people are hoping for 3 groups.
Not sure how that fits in with the tempo group.

Hi David
As no club or individual takes responsibility for this CG I don't know who can reply. The tempo group have decided to start at 6:30. See you there.

Hi David - I'd say there were 25-30ish - so three nicely sized groups.
Middle group was largely made up of tempo gang - with everyone taking turns, and efforts being made to keep the group together as a single, smooth working bunch.
I reckon you'd fit right in to that one (or you could try with the fast boys if you're feeling masochistic!)

Sounds great, Graeme. How many riders were there? Presumably a decent number to have 3 groups? I'm planning to go next week, weather permitting of course.

Last night's Chalmerston chaingang was brilliant.
There were three decent sized groups, and we did two laps (except the slowest group, who did three - hardcore!)

The first group away averaged about 22mph on the circuit. [We gave them 4 minutes and never saw them again! - so four minutes was perhaps too much, and/or there were some ringers in that bunch!]
I went in the middle group and we averaged about 23mph. it was a great bunch, with minimal attrition and everyone working well.
The fast boys averaged around 25mph, and caught us just before the middle of the second lap [not sure how long they gave us, but perhaps a little more would be ideal].

All in all, a great start to CG season!
