Hi folks, due to our involvement in the National Bike Week 2011 Kids Parade and Criterium this Sunday, June 26th, in Mullingar town centre, the committee have decided to cancel the official Lakeside Wheelers Sunday Spin in order to give all members a chance to participate.
You may remember we took a similar decision this date last year to coincide with the same festival and it was a great success as it is not too often that we get a chance to ride around our town with the main streets closed off for us.
We would ask that as many members as possible come out and support this Fun Day of cycling and if not participating that you would lend a hand with the marshaling and general organisation on the day.  Start time is 2pm and if you are available to assist could you please txt/email Joe Duffy at 086-8181919 or joe@nbcri.ie or Shay O'Toole at 087-6811533 or shayjotoole@gmail.com
To whet your appetite we are launching the Inter Firms Fun Cycle, so why not get three of your friends and yourself to take part in this event which proved hugely popular last year.   The idea is to cycle in teams of four around the National Criterium Championships circuit for  2 Laps with your time being judged on your last team mate to cross the line so it is a real team effort and is of no benefit to race off individually.
In the spirit of fairness we would ask that you do not "pack" your team with "hotshots" and that ideally each team should have a good balance. This is an ideal opportunity to introduce some of your non-cycling friends to the sport, you know the ones who always slag you about wearing the lycra!!! and the main aim is to have a bit of "craic".   To enter a team please call/email Joe Duffy at 086-8181919 or joe@nbcri.ie .
