National Hill Climb Championships 2018

David Kyle National Masters 40 Hill Climb Champion 2018

David Kyle headed up to the north of the country at the weekend to take on the very tough National Hill Climb Championships that were hosted by Foyle cycling club. The race took place on the very steep Scalp Mountain in Co. Donegal.  A climb of 484 vertical meters in a distance of just under 6km. It looked very steep from the photos anyway. David completed the course in an incredible time of 20.47. Huge congratulations to you David on behalf of us all here in the club, mighty achievement and our second National Champion in the club. Unbelievable stuff…

Sunday club spin

It’s great to see such big numbers turning out again for the club spins after the summer season and here’s to more nice winter morning spins and warm cups of coffee. 🙂 The weather held up great for the spin and the lads(and ladies) decided on keeping the route as flat as possible to help keep the group together on the morning. Although I don’t think we actually have any flat routes out of Nenagh, just levels of difficulty… 😉 They headed out towards Thurles and from there on to Templemore where they pulled in for a well timed coffee break and even a few buns with thanks to Eoin Woods which were quickly disposed of by the hungry mob 🙂 From there it was onwards to Roscrea and then back to Nenagh to finish off a great metric century spin. Well done everyone on what was a great morning out on the bikes!
