End of Year Cycle: We have decided to move the End of Year Cycle to Sunday, Sept 8th. The reason for this is to allow people to take some time-off from cycling to recharge their batteries before returning to action in October.
People have trained hard all year so we are going to try and finish up with a big one. Don’t worry, ye will all be well able for it. Dan Hogan has kindly agreed to tow a maximum of 6 around if you find it too hard.
Start time: 10:00am, Sunday, Sept 8th.
Meeting place: Kenyon Street car park
Incentive: The club will reward everyone for supporting the club cycles all year by supplying all the food at the food stop.
Food Stoop: Portroe

National Series Update: The NS points have been updated once again. The girls are still very high in the rankings. They have moved into the top 10, while the lads are down in 26th position in the men’s rankings. We have a few of our members racing in Dublin, the Lost Sheep and Lough Key so we should be able to pick up a few more points. The dream of getting the women into the top 3 appears to be over, aaaaaaaawwwwwwwww (we are thinking of putting all the blame on Sheila Gregan – like this post if you agree!)
