We had another couple of good turbo sessions during the week and finally we got back out on the road and managed to get in some good spins in some reasonably nice weather albeit fairly windy. All in all I think everyone who braved the wind really enjoyed the few hours of fresh air! Saturdays spin was another great endurance spin with around 100km covered and they even took a few minutes out to enjoy a coffee in the Obama Plaza before returning back to Nenagh via Cloughjordan. This coffee thing is starting to catch on… 🙂
On Sunday it was decided to deviate from the planned route due to the high winds and those out went to Portroe, Ballina, O’Briens Bridge, on to Daly’s cross and then rode the wind back in the main road to Nenagh. Overall a great spin was had on a nice morning.

This weeks route: Moynans – Capparoe – Ballinahinch – Newport – Daly’s Cross – O’Brien’s Bridge – Clonlara – turn right before crossing canal, towards Broadford – in Broadford take a right (R466) Bridgetown – O’Brien’s Bridge – Birdhill and Home, 92km. For those that don’t want to do the full figure 8 there is an option to not turn at O’Brien’s Bridge and head straight for Birdhill which would make it a roughly 60km loop.
