The #Velo7173 Chain Gang: A powerhouse of PB performances

Following the success of the first #Velo7173 Chain Gang I was really looking forward to this week’s hit out. It was another Tassie stunner of an evening, albeit with a little more wind and a little less daylight than last week. Just warm enough for bare legs too. Any ride in shorts and short sleeves…

The inaugural #Velo7173 Wednesday Night Chain Gang!

Last night was the first ever edition of the Velo 7173 Wednesday Night Chain Gang! I’d been trying to get a bunch of local riders together for a while, but one thing or another got in the way and then summer was gone. Last night though, it all came together perfectly! I’d previously created a…
