Saturday D Group Spin 19th Sept 2020

Saturday a large group, within guidelines met at O' Briens. The new "C" group under the watchful guidance of Ulrika & Pat detailed their proposed route.

The D group with Tom Carolan and myself opted for a scenic route. We headed to Dalystown across to Rochfortbridge and across the bog to Rhode. On our arrival in Rhode we were met by a very irate "Dublin" driver - how he escaped from the Capital is beyond me. He proceeded to demonstrate to us that the roads were for vehicular traffic only. With a polite wave we ignored him, which left him completely speechless and headed for Croughan. From here it was onto Tyrrellspass and a well-earned coffee/scone in the Castle.

It was here by unanimous decision Lorraine was handed the "golden handle bars" and chain of office and was duly recognised as the "new" mother hen. After the customary acceptance speech it was homeward bound. A very healthy 60km in the legs. Well done one and all.

Beginners Cycling Course

There have been a few enquiries about an adult beginners course. Did you buy a bike during the lockdown? Would you like to join the Wheelers?.

It is proposed to offer a beginner course starting on the 4th October. Over 6 weeks we will slowly get you cycling from couch to 50km.

Due to Covid restrictions registration will be required and numbers will be limited. If you are interested contact Gerry Wallace 087 2557733 for details.
