(By Roibeard O'Ceallaigh - Sun. 23rd November)   
Sunday dawned bright and very cold. Cold enough that the roads were glassy with  late forming frost. A smaller than normal group of B's and C's gathered at ORS dwarfed by the large number of A's (elite athletes allegedly!) heading out on their sophisticated training spin. We (well eleven of us) on the other hand decided that a nice cup of tea was in order while the sun came up and hopefully other roads would be less slippery. So the Mullingar Park had the "pleasure" of entertaining eleven "very fit" cyclists for an what must be admitted was a very enjoyable hour of chat.

After the hour we roused ourselves and went out into the cold and headed off into the sun, i.e. towards Tyrrellspass. By this time the roads were decidedly safer and we enjoyed a challenging speed set mostly by a certain former cub chairman. It definitively warmed us up. Anyway, we got out on the roads safely, enjoyed ourselves and the glorious sunshine. What more could one want on a Sunday morning in November?
