Club Spin
Numbers were down this weekend as it was cold and misty, however, there were still some brave (or stupid) participants out on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday morning we had a group at 7.30am and at 9. On Sunday we also had 2 spins, both meeting at Moynan’s Bike Shop, Nenagh. We welcomed a new member to the Sunday spin. We hope you enjoyed your first spin with NTW Patrick and we look forward to seeing you on the road! To any other cycling enthusiasts we encourage you to contact the club and come to either turbos and the weekend spins. This weeks spin departs from Moyan’s this Sunday at 9am.

We will be placing the order for new club gear soon, especially with winter fast approaching. The club website will very shortly be updated with the current on-hand stock (many items on 50% sale!) so keep an eye out for it to see if any item you are keen to purchase is already available.
Alternatively, please contact Jan and she will be able to let you know if what you want is in stock. We’ll let you know when it’s time to submit your order.
