Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, The NTW Committee have regretfully taken the decision to postpone this years Tour de Lough Derg indefinitely. The event was due to take place on May 10th, with the current restrictions in place until May 3rd, it is unlikely that Group Cycling will have resumed. At the time of the decision, the club are not in a position to propose a new date. When we can, we will look at all options to rearrange for later in the year. Regards, NTW Committee

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 […]
