The relentless stretch of windy and wet weather over the last few months is still proving to be a major obstacle for many members leaving the numbers on the Sunday spins very much depleted. 

A week ago the heavy rain resulted in the majority of Wheelers remaining in the “leaba” however, as usual, there were some who braved the conditions and went out for a few miles. Kudos to these lads and lassies who clearly needed head space or a release from the cabin fever normally associated with the Christmas period. 

Last Sunday wasn’t a whole lot better but at least the strong winds were not accompanied by the rain and mist that have dominated the last few weeks which resulted in a slightly larger group gathering at the clubhouse for the Sunday spin. Hopefully this trend continues over the coming weeks. 

However, as the saying goes, there is more than one way to skin a cat so a few Wheelers took an alternative option last Sunday and headed off-road in the Garden of Ireland for the weekly fix - see separate report.
