A very good afternoon to you all. The weeks are flying by so fast and in just another week we will see the evenings get that bit darker earlier with the clocks changing back. We have been so lucky of late to enjoy some unusual fine weather for this time of year and it has been great, its giving us a chance to enjoy some fair weather cycling. Long may it last. We do not have much to update you on this week, only a couple of events to remind you of that are creeping up on us very quickly.
We look forward to seeing you at the AGM later on this evening at 8pm in the Dapp Inn, Nenagh. Please do your best to attend and we look forward to seeing you there. Thanks all.
Its only a few weeks away everyone, our awards night that takes place on Saturday, November 10th. This year again the presentation and dinner will be held in the main function room of the Thatched Cottage, Ballycommon at 7pm. We will then enjoy a three course dinner with tea/coffee served afterwards and all for the super price of only €25pp. November is a great time to host this event as we do understand that coming up to, dare I say it, Christmas, everyone has a lot happening and also have other commitments on and might not be able to make it. So there’s no excuses folks 🙂 Remember, everyone is welcome to join us on the night so do bring your family and friends along for a fun filled evening. We do need to know numbers as soon as you possibly can as the restaurant will need to know how many people to cater for which is only fair. Please contact Jan on 087 1374354 to confirm your attendance… Thanks everyone and we look forward to seeing you all very soon 🙂
Winter turbo training
We will have an update for you on the winter turbo training sessions that are returning very soon so please keep and eye on the website here for more details.
Clocks change back
Don’t forget that the clocks change back an hour this coming weekend folks, 28th of October. “Winter is coming” 🙂
It’s been a pleasure
On a personal note, as it’s now at the end of another cycling season and now that the AGM is just upon us, this will be my last post as your PRO. After 4 years of being very involved in the NTW committee and being its PRO, I have decided it’s time for me to step down from committee duties this year and let some new blood take over the role. It has been a fantastic experience overall, I have learnt so much along the way, considering that when I started this role first I wasn’t very confident at writing up reports or even using a computer 🙂 but now I can confidently say that has changed 🙂 I have thoroughly enjoyed reporting for the club each week and keeping you all up to date on what has been happening. I hope that you have enjoyed reading the updates each week and I thank you and our loyal followers for taking the time to do so as a lot of work went into it behind the scenes. I have been very lucky over the years to work alongside some great friends on the committee and I wish the new committee when elected, the very best of luck going forward. Also I want to say a special thank you to my husband, our NTW Chairman, Owen, for all his help and encouragement along the way.
Thanks all, Selina.
Hi-Vis clothing and lights are now a requirement!! Be safe be seen! Also for the winter season it would be much appreciated if mudguards were fitted to your bikes as the roads at this time of the year can be mucky and nobody wants to get sick from muck being splattered into their mouths and faces while on a group spin. Thank you!
Tuesday: club spin leaving from Moynans bike shop Nenagh at 6:15pm.
Thursday: club spin leaving from Moynans bike shop Nenagh at 6:15pm.
Saturday: Training spin leaving from Woodies car park, Nenagh at 9am.
Sunday: Club spin leaves Moynans at 9am. Don’t forget the clocks change back this weekend to winter time. The suggested route for Sunday 28th: Moynans – Toomevara – Moneygall – Left in Dunkerrin – Right for Milltown – Shinrone – Old Birr Road – up to Bikepark Ireland’s cafe for a coffee stop if desired – Ballingarry – Borrisokane – Ballinderry – Puckane – back to Nenagh, 82km. Option of heading back to Nenagh from Borrisokane would make it a 68km loop or extending to Carrigahorig and Terryglass to make it around 90km.
Have a great week everyone!
