Group Cycles & Sportive Update

The good weather of late has guaranteed big crowds for all of the club spins. Last Sunday morning was a perfect example with four separate groups departing the clubhouse at 9am. The main route of the day was Killucan, Ballivor, Summerhill, Enfield and then straight home along the N4. While mostly flat in nature this route resulted in high speeds and everyone enjoyed the day out. Check their World Bike Day cycle here .

The Wednesday evening 6.30pm spin continues to be very successful. This is a mixed ability spin as most lads and lassies will have raced at the weekend or at the MiL so, the midweek ride is a little more leisurely. If you have not yet tried it, this is a great way to get more mileage in and improve fitness levels for sportives or racing.

Lakeside Wheelers members have been very active on the Sportive scene in recent weeks. A large group travelled to the Tour of Connemara where they enjoyed a good spin, lovely scenery and fabulous weather. Further south there was also another group on the Ring of Beara cycle which, on a good day must be one of the most scenic cycles in the country.

Members are reminded that our own Tour of the Lakes sportive will be held on Sunday June 17th so keep this date free.
