The Chain Gang this week was scuppered by a sudden storm that hit Brockenhurst half an hour before the planned start. Only 4 riders were at the start and a decision was taken that the sudden downpour on roads that had been bone dry for several weeks were an unnecessary risk.

Hope for better luck next week and as it will be August the start time will come forward to 1845.
