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.

Club Notes – Phase 3 Cycling Update

Posted on
Hi all, as we have now passed the 29th of June, the club can officially resume cycling activities. We will resume our usual  Tuesday and Thursday  evening club spins and our Sunday morning club spin, all of which start from outside Moynan’s bike shop located in the Kenyon Street car park.
Before we set off on our merry way, it is imperative we follow the items listed below:
  • Club spins at this time are for club members only


  • Groups of no more than 15 members are permitted


  • Social distances to be maintained as per the HSE guidelines


  • Members should review before they attend each club activity their own self assessment screening questionnaire

Peter Moynan will record the names of the members who attend our club cycles. This is extremely important so please make sure Peter has recorded your name.
There is a recommendation that all club officials and members complete cycling Ireland’s online Covid19 eLearning course. It takes approx. 15mins and has some very useful advice and takes you through what to do in some potential  scenarios if symptoms of Covid 19 are reported during any of our club activities. Follow the link attached to complete. https://www.sportireland.ie/covid19/course

NTW le Tour de Lough Derg – Postponed

Posted on

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.

This weeks weather was not favourable for cycling! We still have our turbo sessions being held on a Tuesday and Thursday in Ballycommon at 7pm – a great way to avoid the blustery conditions. On Saturday, despite the poor forecast we had a nice group for our New to Group Cycling Initiative. This week we focused on rolling over in a group and gear changes on hills. The group cycled from Nenagh to Silvermines to Dolla to Nenagh. This week we are holding our initiative in association with Ballycommon Sponsored Ride in order to raise money for Nenagh Special Summer Camp. Again it will begin at 9am outside Moynan’s Bike Shop  Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details.
