New Year, New Resolutions, New Tyres

Post date: Jan 03, 2016 10:36:13 PM

The D-Group guys were feeling fresh last Saturday and started off as they intend to continue, despite another wet day. Nevertheless a group of seven assembled at the barracks. After the recent over-indulgences of Christmas it was nice to burn the excess calories.

As usual our ever reliable Club President, Oliver Bright was in attendance and with the prospect of rain we decided on a short spin to Moate. We headed out of our base and it was soon apparent that some of us had not seen a bike for 3-4 weeks. It was not long before the dreaded rain came and once we donned our waterproof jackets it was not too long before we arrived in Moate and the pit-stop was a welcome distraction. Of course the dreaded "puncture demon" struck with Kevin Nolan, the 2015 most improved cyclist the victim on this occasion. Now all we can say is that after covering 6,000km on these tyres it's time you invested in some new rubber.

We look forward to seeing all of our regulars coming back to the groups in the coming weeks. If you would like to join the Wheelers on our regular Saturday spins we would love to welcome you to the Columb Barracks on any Saturday morning @ 9.00a.m.
