Club Zwift Mondays!

7pm Wed off road club run - Full gas.

Leaving the Tuns at 7pm prompt, CX or MTB. Groups of 6 max, we will go off in waves if needed. The route is around 17miles, most of this will be max effort but we will regroup at the start and end of bridleway sections. No one will get lost but you should be prepared for a fast paced ride (think chain gang on gravel type effort but with no drafting).

  • Thanks Dan. Sam and I will be there
  • Hoping to be there
  • I'm planning on being there
  • See you at the tuns...
  • Out of interest would this be doable on a road bike with 32-35c knobbly tyres? Thinking i may be able to more adventures like this on my Trek Domane. Are road pedals going to clog up etc?
  • HI Chris, the worst section is green lane because the ruts are so deep but 32 knobbly would be fine, ill be taking it steady through there and we may even skip that section and carry on the road to hinxworth and pick the route up again there.
  • Despite the awful weather we had the biggest turn out ever for a Wed night blast. We set off in two groups, sending out the young and keen in group 1. Didn't really notice the rain once we got going. Green Lane is an awful section of bridleway and in these conditions it was really tough going. Will avoid it next week.

  • We are on again this week, will split into groups if needed, plan on doing last weeks route but in reverse with the option of bypassing Green lane. 7pm at the Tuns
  • Will be there this week 😀
  • see you there Dan!
  • Aiming to be there
  • CHRIS why not use your boardman cross bike. That’s what it’s for
  • Thanks Vince 👍, I'll be there
  • 11 out for the reverse route, better conditions this week and green lane more manageable uphill and with cut grass.

    thanks for covering last week Dave.

    We are on again for this Wednesday leaving the Tuns at 7pm, running the original anti-lockwise route in groups of 6 but for a change there will be no regrouping at the end of bridleways, this will be a full gas effort for the complete course.

    8 out tonight in two groups of four

    Dan
    Ben
    Martin H
    Vince

    Toby
    Peter
    Daniel
    Dave

    Really hot and no wind, I was struggling at the end, Martin was flying!

    Good to meet you Toby, I hope you enjoyed it.
  • Plan for this week is to ride Dave's excellent CX course for a few laps of max effort before we head out for a shorter ride around Ashwell. This would be a good time for anyone thinking of trying these rides out as you cant get lost at Smallgains, the laps take around 4mins to complete. Meet at the Tuns and then we can cycle over to the track.
  • 6 out tonight for the reverse route, fast, muddy and tough going in places, proper CX.

  • With a lack of racing is there any appetite to do some of these on a Sat/Sun? Would be great if so.
  • Luke, Get signed up for Tour of the Cornfields on Sun 6th, 100km off-road full gas. Already a few CCA going
  • Adam S asked me, but it looks very unlikely for me with the wife away and childcare. Working on it though
  • Off road full gas ride is on this Wed, leaving the Tuns at 7pm prompt. We will head down to smallgains for a few laps of the CX course followed by a shorter local ride. Might be worth bringing some lights. See you there
