Post Ride Review (18/07)

Good ride last week, definite improvement. A couple of points to keep in mind as we continue through the initial phase (bunch riding fundamentals) and work on establishing our group.

1.  The pace will not be fast during this phase and stronger riders will need to adopt a “easy spin” attitude. This is especially important when coming to the front or on uphill sections. The speed will increase as the bunch develops.

2.  There are some gaps forming at times in our bunch, if this occurs in front of you, you need to either close the gap (sooner rather than later) or signal to the riders behind you to come through. Each rider in the bunch is responsible for holding the wheel of the rider in front.  If a big gap occurs call to the front to “ease up” and keep the bunch together.

Okoroire should be a good chance to try out some of the things we have been practicing, just remember that no bunches will wait on race day, you need to stay in contact.
