Hilly Sunday

A very cold, wet, windy, and generally crappy day, and still our Members turn out (10 and 3 from the Leisure Touring Group in photo). We were delighted to welcome Stephen, a new Club Member, who had a ride to remember (or maybe forget!)

The spin was c.76km, and was geared deliberately towards climbing. It took in Moneygall, Army Hill, Gortgarry, Borrisoleigh, Upperchurch, Bolingbroke, Dolla and back to Nenagh. Coffee stop was in Dolla, where a shivering and wet group were relieved to get down some hot beverages, paid for by Peter Moynan. That’s one very popular man.

Needless to say, there had to be a puncture. This time it was Sean, who was directly assisted by Peter in sorting the problem, with Peter and Liam giving instructions. Other members were sitting on the ditch, enjoying seeing frozen hands hard at work.

“What Pump? I thought you had it.”
