Club Open Night: The first Open Night of the year was held on Monday evening in Moynan’s Bike Shop. A good few turned up on the night and they were able to renew or register their membership for the coming year, buy club gear which was on display (some bargains in there still, so talk to Jan), discuss any issue with regard to cycling with the club and cycling in general, and browse the great range of bikes and cycling products in the shop. Many thanks to Peter and David for hosting us on the night. As usual, great craic […]
