In summer running on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from Aldi in Upminster.
Operated in a few different styles; including Hare & Hounds; whereby the hares are chased down by the hounds to exercise two different packs of speed. The Hares are known to win as much as the hounds!
Chain gangs usually operate with the drop on the protected near-side.
Note that as part of coaching there is a beginner's chain gang at lower speeds to practice technique.
Last season saw our cyclists race at various venues including those of the Dunton Ford Cycle Club and Redbridge Cycle Centre at Hog Hill; in 2017 we iintend to represent Hornchurch Cycle Club at more races and with greater numbers.
At Dunton there are eight races though the season, every other Thursday starting from April.
Our racing team takes a serious approach to local sportives, practicing techniques and taking in miles on various terrain.
Doug Rushworth looks after our race training groups and is training to be as British Cycling coach.
