Cycling Updates

Update: This evening’s cycle will almost certainly be going ahead. Just make sure you wear gear that suits the weather. If for some reason a tornado/hurricane appears likely we will update the website with a cancellation notice.

Thursday Cycling: Roll Over Session – The first of our Nenagh-Roscrea-Nenagh roll over sessions starts tomorrow May 9th at 6:30pm from the swimming pool. These sessions are excellent for building your fitness on the bike and are not to be missed. Cost = €0 (payable by cheque).

For  those of you that have not taken part before – we cycle together from the swimming pool at 6:30pm out to Dunkerrin. We will stop there for a few minutes and divide everyone into large ability based groups. Don’t worry you can go in whichever group you want. The slower groups will be let off first and they will receive a large time handicap. Each group has to work together to try and stay away.

The more people we have out for this the better. So try and give it a go for the first week at least!

Rás Marshalls Needed: As most of you know, the An Post Rás is coming to Nenagh very soon. Stage 2 will be finishing in Nenagh on Monday, May 20th. The Rás race committee have asked for our club to provide some marshalls for the race finish in Nenagh if we can. Most of ye have valuable left/right pointing experience from marshalling the North Tipp Sprint so those kind of top level marshalling skills are needed here. Helping to promote cycling in the town helps to promote what we offer in our club so please make yourself available from 1:00pm to 3:30pm on Monday if you can.

Shane is putting together a list of volunteers from the club. If you can help out then text him at 087 2605743.

Tour of Lough Derg: The annual Tour of Lough Derg takes place this year on Sunday, May 26th. This is organised by our friends in the North Tipp Wheelers and is a very popular event with our club members. I think we had close to 20 taking part last year so make sure you make yourself available. Visit their Facebook page for more details
