This morning there was a small group of eight for the C group Sunday spin. There were two members of the group returning to the fold after several months absence. As I listened to their chat about recent achievements and experiences on the Ring Of Kerry and the Tour of the Lakes, I thought maybe I should have stayed under the duvet!

One of the group said "no need to worry shur it'll be a 'sedate' pace". We were only metres behind the large peloton of the B group for the first 13 km heading to Horseleap, we lost one of our gang as he joined them.  On the Clara road we turned left to Kilbeggan where the Distillery beckoned for refreshments, as usual Peter Lonergan and his staff looked after us well. One member of the group caused a bit of a stir with the healthy option of a toasted sausage sandwich which was described as heaven!

We then had an enjoyable dash home which was anything but "sedate".  On days like this you realise what you miss when absent, the friendship, banter and the craic. The distance and pace don't matter , thank you gentleman for making our return spin so much fun.
