Record Numbers for Sunday Spin 6th March

posted 7 Mar 2011, 14:07 by Kevin Monaghan
I am not even going to attempt giving an individual report on all of the club spins which took place last Sunday, 06/03/2011. The jury is out on the debate as to whether this day saw the most Wheelers ever to turn up on a Sunday. Believe it or not but there was almost 90 riders in the various groups which departed ORS and with wind direction dictating routes many of these pelotons crossed paths at some point during the day.

Just to give a flavour of what took place, the A Group went to Athlone via Ballymore and home via the N6, B Groups went to Streamstown, across to Moate and home via N6. C Groups went on a similar route to the B’s with only slight variations depending on fitness levels and I believe they had a new rider Seamus Clarke, who has graduated from the Saturday morning “Academy” so well done Seamus.

All in all it was an amazing sight to see so many Wheelers out on the roads which bodes very well for the coming months with the season now officially underway.
