Next Saturday a group of Wheelers will head south to Co Limerick for a weekend of off-road trail riding at the Ballyhoura Bikepark. The outing is organised by the club Race Group and is specifically timed to act as a “bonding” day for the racers before the hard road racing season kicks off in the second half of next month. This event is becoming somewhat of an annual affair on the Lakeside Wheelers social calendar.

Last year’s outing went north to Rostrevor in the Mourne Mountains for a similar day of fun and hardship with the reward coming in the shape of a few pints on the way home. This year’s spin includes an overnight which allows for a second run at the trails on Sunday morning before returning home in the afternoon.

A full report on the weekend away will be included in next week’s notes.
