Club notes

It was a cold start to the weekend spins, Saturday morning a small racing group headed towards Portroe, Ballina, Daly’s cross and back to Nenagh 75km.

On Sunday morning we had  good turnout of 25 riders that headed towards Dolla where the group was split with the senior group heading towards Silvermines and the N7 at a faster pace than the Leisure group behind. Both groups turned off at Birdhill towards Montpelier, Dalys cross and up up the ramp at Birdhill to the Apple Green service station for a coffee stop. all the riders were warmly welcomed and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere before heading for home,  cycling a distance of 75km.
