The Sunday spin of Week 3 in the A groups Winter Training program was lucky to enjoy weather conditions that were better than the conditions we endured during most of “the  summer”.  It was a real treat for anyone who was out on the bike today, it even made the newly fitted mudguards look out of place.

With very little wind we headed for a target of 100 steady kms towards Rathowen on the N4, right for Streete, Lisryan and in to Granard then out the Ballinalee road for a  few km before taking a left on back roads to Edgeworthstown, Carrickboy, Tashinny, Colehill, Ballynacarrigy and home. See the route at:

The A-group welcomed Gareth Butler and Jimmy O’Connor who were giving the spin a go. Hope you enjoyed the spin.  I hope Sundays weather is sign of the winter weather to come. Mark Horohoe.
