Mountain Biking News

Mountain bike officer, Paul Crowley has been busy of late and has two news items which will be of interest to those of you who like the mud and dirt.
 
Firstly, we hope to be receiving a permit this week which will allow us to use Tober Woods in Multyfarnham for mountain biking. This is a fantastic asset to the club and comes after many months of negotiations with Coillte, the forestry authorities so well done to Paul and I believe Mairtin Savage also played his part in securing this facility. The woods are near Donore demesne which is about three miles from Multy village and the trails are mostly dirt tracks through the trees with some nasty hilly bits thrown in also. Paul tells me that there will be some work required to prepare the facility for use and that hopefully some members will volunteer to help but more about that when the weather improves.
 
The second instalment from Paul is the news that there is a three stage mountain bike event coming up in the next few weeks. The events will be staged in the lands attached to the homes of club members, Dave Fagan, Adrian Murphy and Damien O’Brien Deails of the events are as follows:- 
 
Saturday 27th November:    Dave Fagan  -for ages 12 & up (adults too), Prizes for underage event (12yr - 16yr)
Saturday 18th December:    Damien O'Brien for ages 12 & up (adults too), Prizes for underage event (12yr - 16yr)
Monday 3rd January:            Adrian Murphy - all underage welcome (adults too), Prizes too

All events will start at 2pm.  More details will be emailed and will be available on the website closer to the events.
The emphasis is on participation and fun so all members are welcome to come and we look forward to seeing you there.
We are very grateful to David, Damien and Adrian who make these events possible for all the club to enjoy - thanks lads.
