Club Notes / This weeks spins

Posted

It’s been the worst start to the winter with four bad storms that are unfortunately disrupting our weekend spins so it was a case of using the indoor turbo sessions to get in some training.

Tuesday and Thursday night we had the usual turbo training sessions at Stereame.

There was no Saturday spin due to storm Desmond so a club turbo session was held instead. The room is now spotless again and ready for the Tuesday evening session 🙂

Sunday we finally got a good bright morning for our club spin after the bad storm the day before and everyone was delighted to get back out on the roads. The spin was kept at a steady pace and everyone stayed together for the whole route and a total distance of 85km was covered on the morning.

A few floods were met on the roads but at the end of the spin. Some were using the floods as their cool down 🙂

Next week’s Club Training spins are as follows:

Wednesday: Club night spin leaving from Moynans at 7pm. Avg speed between 25/27kph.

Saturday:

A few club members take part in an intermediate cycle 40/50km in distance, averaging 25kph on a Saturday morning leaving Woodies at 7.30am.  Anyone who wants to is very welcome to join in on this spin. You can contact William on 086 2447888 for more details.

Normal 9am spin from Woodies carpark: We’ll attempt again the planned spin from the last two weekends… and hopefully we wont have any more storms! Route: Dolla – Templederry – Borrisoleigh – Templemore – Dunkerrin – Moneygall – Toomevara – Dolla – Silvermines – Old N7 – Nenagh. The group can decide on the morning if they want to stop for a coffee at the Obama Plaza (56km). For any of the grroup not looking for the distance they can head back to Nenagh from Toomevara which will make it around 75km. At this time of the year the Saturday spin is no worse than the Senior group spin on a Sunday so for any of our non racers, if you find yourself free on a Sat morning and feel like coming out for a spin in good company, don’t be afraid to turn up and join in! 🙂
