Traditionally, the Club hosts an Open Night in Peter’s shop, which, among other functions, allows some club members to register and pay for their Cycling Ireland membership via the club. Unfortunately, because of the Covid restrictions, it will not be possible to have an Open Night this year. In these circumstances, we would ask all club members to go directly to the Cycling Ireland website and register/pay there. Based on personal experiences, it’s quite straightforward. Can you please ensure that the requested information is supplied fully, as we’ll need this information for our own club records.
Separate from Cycling Ireland, there’s an annual NTW fee of €20, which we need to keep separate from the Cycling Ireland payment. This can be given to Peter or Jan at your convenience.
We were unable to hold a Club Awards night this year due to restrictions, So this years winners were awarded their trophies by Jan in Moynan’s Shop this week. A huge congratulations to Edvins Silovs and to Eva Moynan.
Edvins was the winner of the Hill Climb Championship, Road Race Championship and was Cyclist of the Year for 2020.
North Tipperary Wheelers will hold their AGM on Tuesday 27th October 2020 at 8pm. Due to Covid-19 restrictions this meeting will be held virtually via Zoom. This is your chance to have your say on club matters and we would like to see as many club members as possible join the meeting on the night so please make the effort to be there. Members will be sent the meeting details closer to the event via email.
This week’s notes are short and sweet. We had small numbers on both Tuesday and Thursday evening for the spins. The evenings are getting shorter so we have decided that we’ve to move the spins forward to 6.15pm and everyone is obliged to have lights and/or hi-vis! On Sunday we had a great group of 12 who headed for the hills before the group split with 4 heading home early and the others extending the spin to make the most of the sunny weather! We also had some exciting news in racing this weekend with Eoin Woods winning silver at the Irish National Masters Championship Individual TT! Congratulations Eoin super result!
This Weeks Spins Tuesday 6.15pm from Moynan’s Thursday 6.15pm from Moynan’s Sunday 9am from Moynan’s
Apologies for lack of notes last week – holidays are over and the real world is taking its toll on me!!
Last Sunday we had our third and final championship race. It was a super race and a strong performance put in by all! With a mechanical, a dropped bottle and a fair few dodgy excuses the race was an eventful one! It was great to see Daniel and Patrick Yon Hin come out but despite Daniel’s great win he isn’t a club member so the race win on the day was therefore given to Edvins, second place was Eva and a close third to Liam! Great effort by all and apologies to anyone suffering from damaged egos!!
This week saw a good group out on Tuesday night taking in plenty of hills and on the Utah night enjoying a flatter faster route! The evenings are getting shorter but hopefully we can continue these spins for a while longer!
The last of the limerick leagues were held this week and I hope I’m allowed to congratulate myself on coming first female and first unplaced A4/LC! Despite COVID cancelling a lot of races it was nice to get this win! Thanks to Limerick CC for the league and managing it so well during the uncertain times!
This weekend saw a good group completing just about every hill around finishing up just shy of 100km, getting chased by 2 dogs and a bullock!!! Eventful to say the least! Edvins and Eva also went to Kilmallock and took part in their open race – neither were successful in placing but great to have some racing!
With regards to gear – there were only a few members who wished to purchase gear therefore we won’t be having a bulk order or fitting. If anyone has any questions regarding the gear please contact Eoin Ryan.
