Busy week again this week in the club!
On Tuesday, despite the miserable conditions 5 brave souls headed out on the club spin and 2 headed to the limerick league! All suffered in the blustery conditions but (hopefully) enjoyed themselves all the same!

On Thursday the weather picked up and saw 16 riders on the club spin taking to the hills of Templederry down into Dolla and across to the mines finishing off by picking up the pace from Birdhill to Nenagh! Great to see the familiar faces out as well as some new ones (and semi retired ones!) Whoever else wishes to brush off the cobwebs and take their bikes out, these mid week spins are perfect – short and snappy!

On Sunday we had 2 fantastic groups with a total of 20 riders out altogether! One group headed around the lake and the other group headed towards Shinrone! Both enjoyed the beautiful weather and had great rides!

Club Spins

Sunday a good bunch headed to Newport , Limerick , Parteen,  O’Brien’s bridge, Daly’s cross in the sunshine! Tuesday night saw another nice group of riders head out the Clare direction in the heat and a couple also took part in the Limerick League. Unfortunately no placings this week but the points are still adding up! Thursday night we had a smaller group out in strong winds but there was also lots of individuals testing out the TT course for Saturday.

Munster TT

Thanks to everyone who helped out on Saturday, the Munster TT proved to be an incredible success with 137 riders taking part across the different categories! A special mention to the winners of each category and our own members who took part, Eoin Woods, Andy English, Edvins Silovs, Brian Hennessy, Liam Callaghan, Brandon Boyhan and Eva Moynan. Also a mention to all photographers who captured the day, time keepers, marshals, commissaires, bike checkers, supporters and everyone else involved.


On Sunday after all the action we had a small group of 6 who headed out to Dunkerrin across to Borrisokane where the group halved with 3 coming home and 3 extending!  Very successful week all round!

Club Notes

It’s great to finally be back!

First, on behalf of the committee I want to thank all members for being so patient with regards to Covid 19 restrictions and for adhering to the government guidelines. It is important that we continue to follow the advice in order to keep the virus under control, while still getting out on our bikes and enjoying the sport.

On June 30th we had our first spin back together. On Thursday 2nd July a good gang took to the roads. Unfortunately the weather didn’t hold up for the Sunday spin, however 5 brave cyclists headed out in windy conditions and managed 64km! Thankfully the weather stayed dry for the week of the 6th of July and we had 2 great spins out on Tuesday and Thursday. On Sunday, 17 riders took to the roads and enjoyed a well-earned coffee in Loughmore! Tuesday evening the limerick league returned for its second week back and 2 NTW members – Patrick Yon Hin and myself joined in the action – and yes I’ll say it – congratulations to me on my second place – reckon it’s the first and last time I’ll get to say that! Thursday evening the weather was fabulous and 11 riders headed to Co. Clare in the sunshine. Hopefully these fine evenings will last a while longer and we will continue seeing good numbers on the spin!

Update for the coming weeks:

Tuesday evening 6.30pm spin leaving Moynan’s bike shop (28-32km/hr average)// limerick league 7pm start

Thursday evening 6.30pm spin leaving Moynan’s bike shop (28-32km/hr average)

Sunday morning 9am spin leaving Moynan’s bike shop (2 groups 23-26km/hr average and 28-32km/hr average)


  1. If you’re cycling with us we ask you to review the government guidelines and the Cycling Ireland Covid 19 guidelines prior to the spins
  2. If you’re interested in doing the limerick league look up Limerick CC for the instructions on preregistration and Covid 19 guidelines

The last few weeks were eventful and we’re looking forward to the next few weeks!

Also some more exciting news: we are delighted to announce we will be hosting the Munster TT on August 1st. It is also going to be the paracycling championship round 2 of the league.

Route: Birdhill – five alley – Birdhill

Start time 10am youths, 12pm adults

Online entry only – closing date Wednesday 29th July
