Weekend Cycling

It’s a bank holiday weekend so let’s use this opportunity to get some decent mileage in the legs. To do that, we will need the weather to play ball and early indications are that some of the mornings might not be that great, fingers crossed they will be fine. I would still imagine all 3 cycles will go ahead but check Viber/Facebook each morningĀ  for any last-minute change of plans or routes. The Kanturk 3 Day is the big race on the calendar this weekend but we would also hope that some of our members would make the trip to Wexford for the one day race down there on Sunday.

Saturday Cycle

Racing: Kanturk 3 day starts. Best of luck to any club members taking part.

Training

Start: 9:00 at the hotel

Route: we will be heading on our regular knock inducing cycle route tomorrow. I don’t what it is about this one but multiple deaths are recorded each time we do this route. We will head to Roscrea, Templemore, Thurles, Kilcommon, Dolla and back to Nenagh. Group splits will occur in Roscrea.

Training

Start: 7:30 at Tescos

Route: we will be doing the extended lake route for this.

Monday Cycle – think we might go long for this one.

Start: 7:30 at the hotel.

Route: this will be a long one but we will try and keep a decent pace so that we get back home for 1:00pm. The direction we head for this might change depending on the wind. We will be heading down to Cashel for this one. We will stop for 15 minutes somewhere around the 100km mark.
