Posted on

This week we had turbo on Tuesday and Thursday in Ballycommon as usual. The classes are incorporating individual training requests so if anyone has any interesting slants your ideas are always welcome!

Unfortunately our Sunday spins had to be cancelled this week due to storm Ciara. We hope all were safe during the storm and that anyone who was without electricity now has it back! Hopefully the weather will begin to pick up soon!

Reminder: club initiative to introduce cyclists to group riding begins on Saturday 22nd February. We have had great interest so far. Anyone with questions please feel free to ring Eva on 0873530969 or email the club. We’re really looking forward to it. Hopefully the weather will be on our side.

Reminder for all paid up club members there is an EGM being held in the Abbey Court from 8pm – 9.30pm on Wednesday evening to discuss the clubs position on the racing events for the 2020 season.

Happy February!

Turbo Tuesday and Thursday in Ballycommon saw good numbers again. We have use of the big hall on a Tuesday night and the smaller one on a Thursday, both working out great. Reminder: cycling shoes makes training a lot easier than ‘communion shoes’, especially for the ‘one leg drills’!!

Saturday some took on mountain biking again. The weather makes mountain biking ideal and should anyone wish to get involved with the mountain biking forum please contact one of the members who will add you.

On Sunday the weather was not in our favour. We had 2 groups out and both of which managed approx 2 hour spins. Hopefully the weather will pick up for the spring.

Reminder: we have our spring initiative beginning soon, for those looking to experience looking to advance their knowledge on brakes, gears and group cycling. This initiative is a great idea for anyone who wants a new challenge in 2020. Some of our own cyclists will be there to provide mentorship on the social spins, which begin on February 22nd 2020 @9am @ Moynan’s Bike Shop. It would be great to see new faces out. Any questions please email, send us a message on Facebook or text Eva on 0873530969.

To finish off the festive season we had a group off riders head out to Marbella for some training in the sun. They had blue skies and sunshine for the 4 days and completed 2 challenging cycles in the hills around Marbella. Super stuff lads. The pressure will be on now for the others to keep up with ye!

Turbo saw good numbers on Tuesday and Thursday. Remember it’s 7pm in Ballycommon hall and we love to see new faces!

Sunday spins have also resumed – 9am at Moynans Bike Shop, Nenagh. We only had 5 members who braved the -4°C on Sunday morning. Hopefully the weather will pick up and we’ll see more faces.

We also have a new initiative beginning Saturday February 22nd at Moynans Bike Shop at 9am. It’s suitable for those who are new to group cycling or who wish to have a challenge in 2020. We will be starting with a short cycle learning how to use gears correctly and how to ride in a group and over the course of a few weeks we will progress the distance. We would love to see new faces. Any questions please contact Eva 0873530969.
A quick reminder also for those who haven’t renewed your Cycling Ireland Licences you can pay the fee to Peter in Moynans Bike Shop or to Jan.
This Week:

Happy Christmas and happy new year from all the North Tipperary Wheelers. We had a busy time over the holidays with plenty of spins taking place.
Firstly congrats to Pat and Dan for completing their #festive500. A number of our members joined them along their way and were spoiled with the good weather from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve.
On New Year’s Day we had a good number of cyclists celebrating the beginning of 2020 with a 95km spin. ‘Start as you mean to go on’ was the motto!
We had a number of members trying out mountain biking over the holidays too. It’s one for those who don’t mind getting knee deep in mud – literally! (See photos!!)
Our Sunday spins resumed this week with members gradually easing back into it with a coffee stop in LoughMore half way! 4 of our members trialed the new demo giant bikes from Moynan’s Bike Shop and they really made an impression on the road!

We also want to wish the cyclists who are heading to Spain the very best of luck – you’ll all need it with the gang going!!

 

Turbo also resumed this week and will be on from 7pm every Tuesday and Thursday in Ballycommon.

 

NB – Cycling Ireland have synchronised their renewal date for Licenses to the start of the year, so all memberships are due for Renewal from the 1st Jan. It is imperative that you renew this, if not done already, as soon as possible, as you are not covered by insurance for Club Spins.

Christmas Drinks
This week we have our Christmas Drinks in Rohan’s on Friday evening (20th December) at 9pm. It would be great to see as many members as possible for our last get together before the New Year.
Club Turbo
This week we had a great turn out for turbo on both nights. We want to continue welcoming new faces to these great sessions so please do come to Ballycommon Hall on Tuesday and Thursday evening for the last turbo sessions before Christmas!
Sunday Spin
On Sunday 5 brave (or stupid) souls took to the roads in -1°C. We kept to the main roads and it turned out to be a great spin, with the sun managing to appear in the last hour!
