Hi David - I'd say there were 25-30ish - so three nicely sized groups.
Middle group was largely made up of tempo gang - with everyone taking turns, and efforts being made to keep the group together as a single, smooth working bunch.
I reckon you'd fit right in to that one (or you could try with the fast boys if you're feeling masochistic!)

Sounds great, Graeme. How many riders were there? Presumably a decent number to have 3 groups? I'm planning to go next week, weather permitting of course.

Last night's Chalmerston chaingang was brilliant.
There were three decent sized groups, and we did two laps (except the slowest group, who did three - hardcore!)

The first group away averaged about 22mph on the circuit. [We gave them 4 minutes and never saw them again! - so four minutes was perhaps too much, and/or there were some ringers in that bunch!]
I went in the middle group and we averaged about 23mph. it was a great bunch, with minimal attrition and everyone working well.
The fast boys averaged around 25mph, and caught us just before the middle of the second lap [not sure how long they gave us, but perhaps a little more would be ideal].

All in all, a great start to CG season!
