Last Sunday saw almost record numbers gathering at the clubhouse in lovely sunshine for the weekly spin. There were at least 5 groups and at a “guesstimate” roughly a hundred riders rolled out just after 9am.

Practically all groups chose Ballynmahon for the refreshments stop and headed there via Ballynacarrigy, Carrickboy and Ardagh with the ascent of “Ardagh Mountain” the highlight of the spin.

Once refueled, the gallop for home commenced with the B Group selecting Ballymore, Streamstown and Dysart as the preferred option. Unfortunately the sunshine took a sabbatical as everybody got totally drenched en route to the town which, according to local wit has, two ends and no middle!

In true Irish summer style the sun did reappear and by the time the group was back at base everybody was dry again with another 100kms clocked up.
