The Wednesday evening spins have been running for a few weeks now. But with extra daylight, even if it actually feels more like Winter rather than Summer is on the way, the departure time from ORS carpark has now reverted to 6:30pm. 

This week an ideal sized group of 12 riders departed ORS in the direction of Ballynacargy. We decided to tackle the hill of Laragh that had been included in the Westmeath Tour of Flanders earlier in the year, so we took the left turn a few miles before Ballynacargy. On the top we paused to regroup and pose for a photo and  Then we made our way along the quiet roads through Miltown, across the Ballymahon road and on to Loughnavalley. Then the group split in two for the return leg. Despite the dark clouds overhead for the evening we escaped with a few very light drops of rain and what turned out to be a nice spin. The mid week spin route take this week was:
