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!
