Wheelers in the Mist

A misty morning greeted us this morning, but with the Sunday spin been cancelled last week due to frost, we had yet another super turnout in the B group of approximately 48 cyclist. It was great to see so many new faces, and even poached a couple that moved up from the C group.  If these guys had any nerves cycling in group formation they certainly didn’t show it.  

The route brought us through Ballynacargy over the river Inny and on into Longford turning left past Abbeyshrule and then into Ballymahon to refuel, some of us breaking our lent fast to get some energy back into the legs.  It was back on the saddles to head home via Ballymore, the Hill of Uisneach, Loughnavalley and home.  

Dry and warm for a change, with 80km on the clock and an average speed of 28km/h, not sure what the average speed of the faster B group was, but these guys are right on your tails so be warned. Well done all.
