The “Chain Gang”

During the summer months, when we have longer evenings to play out, Nomads may meet for a Chain Gang. This is a tight-knit formation of riders, each taking their turn to pull on the front before rolling off and settling in for a rest in the wake of the other riders.

There are usually two CG rides in any given week during the summer and a post is usually added to the Facebook website with details of the meeting time and place as well as the likely course. Wednesday night tends to be a faster training ride meeting at 7pm on the Katie’s Attic RAB in Henlow Camp. Thursday nights are a more sociable affair that will often incorporate a hop-based recovery drink.
