Spring Spin Cycles Update

This weekend sees the first of the two events in the 2012 Spring Spin Cycles.  On Sunday (15th April), the Family Cycle will take place at 2pm, starting from The Downs GAA club.  The organising committee is still seeking family cycle participants.  The 20km course is the same as last year and is ideally suited to mams, dads and kids over twelve.  So if you or anyone you know of anyone who wants to participate or help out on the day, get them along to The Downs GAA club at 1pm on Sunday for sign on.  Refreshments will be available after the cycle. Contact Paraic (087 9324752) or Kevin (087 2801330) for sponsorship cards and further information or visit

The Sligo cycle is also just around the corner, the first leg starting the following weekend on Saturday 21st April.  Hopefully training and preparation is going well for everyone.  

Speaking to Paraic Devine over the weekend he was happy with preparations to date "The organising committee is putting the final touches to arrangements for the weekend.  Participants should have received a text message and their final communiqué by letter or email by now so check your email inbox or letterbox.  Check this communiqué as it contains important information about the cycle.  Once you've decided what group you would like to cycle in for the event, text Kevin on 087 2801330 with your chosen group number.  If you have any room-mate preferences for the overnight stay, include them in this text as well. The organising committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Lakeside Wheelers members who've supported this event in its five years.  Club members make up a significant percentage of the overall participants so thanks to all for their continued support."  

Thanks Paraic and good luck with everything over the next two weekends.
