Chain Gang

GGGG Posts: 82
Im sure most of you do this with your tri-club or CC, but for those of you that havent....

I highly reccomend going out and riding a chain gang. Done it for the first time with the CC I belong to. Great workout! Beats the sh*t out of the club run and has made me realise that upto now I have been pansying about on TTs.

We also done some hill sprints.

    Have been on a few. Not got the bottle to go through on the chain though. So it makes it pointless and hardwork at the back. [:(]

    Don't mean to sound dumb, but how does a chain gang work?

    Much Appreciated.

    a group of you share the effort, you go hard up one side, then ease off and drop back down the other side. this creates the chain, the ones putting in the effort shelter the ones easing off. So the direction of the chain is decided by the wind direction. You see it in breakaway groups mainly. My heartrate averaged 170bpm if i remember correctly, maxed out at 196 at one point.
