It was a bitterly cold and wintry start to the weekend. Snow showers, Hail showers, and Ice. Not ideal weather for cycling. This is the view that some us were greeted with early on Saturday morning so due to the dangerous icy conditions the Saturday spin was called off. It was a day that the indoor Turbo trainers were brought into action. On Sunday morning the weather was much the same as it was on Saturday but six very hardy souls braved the frosty morning. The group decided that due to the conditions this weeks planned route was changed and they stuck to the treated main roads. The group cycled from Nenagh out to Birdhill where some opted to have a warming coffee at the AppleGreen service station. Some others opted to ride on to Finnegan’s near Limerick and get some extra miles in the legs. The group rejoined again at Birdhill and they all cycled home together. Well done to everyone who braved the elements.
Just another reminder that the first of the North Tipp Wheelers Club Membership Nights will be held in Moynans Bike Shop, Nenagh on Monday 19th of January from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. We will be helping existing and new members to register with Cycling Ireland and Membership of our Club. Liam Callahan (NTW Road Captain) will do a Demo on his Tacx Turbo Trainer with Video Training routes.We will also have a slide show of pictures and videos taken on club road and mountain biking spins during the last few months.
Richie Greene of Focus Bikes Ireland will have one of the latest High Spec Road and Mountain Bikes for you to feast your eyes on and he will give a talk about these great bikes and answer any questions you may have. Being a keen Mountain Biker himself it will be a good opportunity to get some advice on the subject.
We will be having another membership night on Monday 26th of January from 6.00pm to 8.00pm in Moynans Bike shop once again for anyone who can’t make it on the 19th. Eugene Lynch from Giant bikes will also be there on the night.
Do your best to make it on the evenings and get to know what our club is all about. Everybody is welcome. See ye there.
The usual spins will continue next weekend so keep an eye out on the website and Facebook for updates during the week.
