Club Notes / This weeks spins

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 bike.


On Tuesday we had our normal evening spin, We had a few club members who braved the weather and headed out on the spin they left Moynan’s and headed in the direction of Dolla where they turned for the Silvermines, they continued on to the N7  left for Birdhill, around the roundabout and home. Very wet windy night they managed 50km.


On Sunday we had a few club members head to Limerick to support Limerick Cycling Clubs classic tour and challenge, It was a nice day weather wise for the cycle it was a tough but very enjoyable spin, fair play and well done to the lads who made the trip to take part.
