Some Outer Ring members prefer road to track, which is their right, and sometimes they ask the question, “When will we use road bikes?” There are 3 normal responses to this question.
- Its a velodrome.
- From mid-August onwards we put the track bikes away.
- When the Tour de France Starts we will start reintroducing road bikes to our session.
Well the TdF starts on Saturday and although there is no prologue, instead a flat 200km + stage in the Vendee, there is a Team Time Trial on Stage 3, Cholet – Cholet. To mark this occasion we will have a session this Saturday based on a 10 mile Team Time Trial. Specifically we will run what is called a ‘Two-Up’ where two riders ride as a team. So chose a partner in advance, or let us help you find a suitable racing partner – and be prepared to emulate the Stars of Le Tour.
