The club has advised everybody about using mudguards already but the advantages of using mudguards are simple yet very effective. They save spray from hitting the rider behind which means the rider behind can stay in the slipstream better thus meaning the group can stay closer together and not be spread all over the road.They also help keep your backside a lot drier which I’m sure you’d agree is a lot more comfortable.
There are several types of lightweight mudguards availabe for road bikes and mountain bikes and ae available locally. Fitting them is fairly straghtforward or if you're not confident in taking on the task, your local cyce shops will be happy to oblige.
