There was a great turnout of Wheelers at the recently staged Pat Colgan Memorial run by our neighbours in Tullamore Cycling Club. This is a hugely popular annual event with many Lakeside Wheelers members and thankfully the weather was perfect for this difficult spin.

The route brings the participants over four peaks as they complete a circuit around Tullamore, Kinnity and Birr. The climbing involves the “Cut” from both sides, the “Wolftrap” and Glendine, but thankfully, the latter was tackled from the slightly easier Kinnity side. Well done to all who took part.
