Hi all, we hope ye have all had a good week, with a mixed week of weather we hope ye have all been able to get out on the bikes.
On Tuesday we had our normal evening spin, The group headed off from Moynan’s and cycled out to Toomevara and from there the group headed on to Moneygall where they turned left and headed on to Cloughjordan and on to Borrisokane where the group once again turned left and headed for Ardcroney and from there the group cycled back to Nenagh, Very well done everybody who was out on the evening.
On last Thursday we had our Championship Hill Climb race, It was a reasonably good evening with the rain just about staying away, On the evening we had a few club members out to take part on the route which was the carpark at Clastlelough to the school in Portroe covering 3.5km. Once the racing started everybody was giving it there all and leaving every ounce they had on the road, At the end once the times were calculated it was Joesph Donnelly who took the win with Daniel Ronan taking second place and John O’Carroll completing the podium, Congrats to Joesph on the win and also to everybody else who took part on the evening and thanks to Jan and Brendan for doing the timing and to Paddy Seymour for marshalling and also to Vic for the pictures.
This week’s Club Training spins are as follows:
Tuesday: Club training spin leaving from Moynans at 6.30pm.
Wednesday: Green group spin leaving from outside Eire Og Nenagh GAA grounds at 6:30pm.
Thursday: . Sign on is at Moynan’s at 6.15pm and depart to the start at 6.30pm. Race starts at 7pm sharp. Route: Birdhill – Fivealley roundabout – Birdhill. Entry is €5.
Sunday: Leaving at 9am from carpark at Moynans.
Depending on numbers present, we’re going to split into three groups with defined speeds.
The 3 groups are;
- Firstly a “Green” group that will be for beginners/leisure and that group will be in the region of 20-24kph.
- The next group will be the “Orange” group which is an intermediate group and will be controlled at 25-27kph average.
- Finally we’ll have a “Red” group which will do in the region of 28-32kph average.
We’ll split into the different groups in the carpark, with Red leaving first, then Orange and finally Green. The orange and red groups will cover the same route but there is also a green group spin that should only take about 2 hours cycling and includes a coffee stop.
For anyone reading this and sitting on the fence about whether to come out and give it a go, come on out and try it. You’ll be well looked after, just come in and be ready to leave on your bike at 9am from Moynans.
This week’s Green route is: Moynans – Dolla – Toomevara – Moneygall – Coffee @ Obama Plaza – Back to Nenagh.
And for the Orange & Red it’s: Moynans – Dolla – Bolingbrook – Milestone – Upperchurch – Thurles – Templemore – Dunkerrin – Moneygall – Toomevara – Back to Nenagh.
We hope you have a great week everyone and hopefully we’ll see you out and about on the bikes during the week and weekend..
