B Group Notes Sunday 22 August

Last Sunday approximately 15 B riders assembled for our regular Sunday spin. These are low numbers compared to what we have been used to and are due to people being away on holidays. Group leader Eugene composed a route that could be described as ‘lumpy’ In that it had a fair few drags or small hills peppered throughout. We headed for Ballinacargy through Empor and onto Carrickboy and onto the N55 straight into Ballymahon for the coffee stop. There we were joined by another cycling club from Roscommon who were fuelling up for their long cycle home.

After the coffee break the pace went up - definitely less chatting in the peloton at this stage! A few of the group cut their spin short and made directly for Mullingar while the rest followed the prescribed route and turned right at Loughnavalley to take in Castletown Geoghegan and Dalystown on the way back. Nearly 90Kms done with the sun shining when we got home and the promise of more good weather this week coming and for next weekend. Report by Paul Gibney.
