Date & Time
Sat 23 Sep
8:33 am - 10:03 am (ish)
825 CG - fashionably late at 8.33
It's the 825 group, but we're continuing the experiment of leaving promptly at 8.33. This is a cooperative effort with the goal of fast, safe riding as a group from start to finish.
If you are feeling frisky, restrain yourself (or we'll restrain you!) on the Swindon Ln hill, save it for the last few miles. You're off the leash from the 1st Burley roundabout when we re-join the A65 after Otley.
Safety, pace, and ride notes
If you are struggling on the Swindon Ln hill, take the Dunkeswick Ln cutoff, turn left on Harrogate Rd and continue on. Chances are good the main group will catch you before Pool, then jump back on to get a ride back to Ilkley.
Kit, preparation, and weather
Riders new to chain gang/through-and-off riding are welcome, but raise your hand before we leave so we can help you fit in.
