TIGR (Tuesday Intermediate Group Rides)
January 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Tuesday, repeating indefinitely
Tuesday Intermediate Group Ride (TIGR) is aimed at intermediate riders who would like to ride in a friendly and supportive group but push the pace.
TIGR is a no drop ride with average speeds of 16-18mph; depending on numbers, the evening may also offer higher average speed groups along with an introduction to TIGR ride.
There will be two options on offer this week:
1. Riders will organise themselves into ideally groups of 6-8 who will work as a team to complete various loops around the coastal area – each group should agree on a route, stops, sprint sections etc before setting off.
2. TIGR45. A longer 40 mile this week for riders who would like to make the most of the lighter nights, increase stamina or prepare for longer rides over the summer. There will be no stops other than for regrouping if necessary.
This will not be a fast ride, but please only attend if you are confident of riding this distance at an average of 17 mph (or happy to find your own way home).
Once we get out into quieter roads we will try our hand at some group work to assist the pace and share workloads on the front, the ride will end at the Exchange, North Shields.

Tuesday night riders head to The Exchange, North Shields for a beverage and debrief, so remember to bring some beer money 🙂
