On Sunday a group of seven Wheelers travelled to Roscommon to participate in one of the final sportives of the year. This event was staged by the Donamon Dynamos cycling club and as usual it was a very well organised spin.

The route took the riders along a rolling110km trip through the country roads of Roscomon and east Galway. There was a single climb out of Dunmore but it was the gale force winds that made this spin extremely difficult.

Thankfully all got home safe and sound and enjoyed a very welcome curry on return! Wheelers in Roscommon were Claire Malone, Carmel Buckley, Cathy O’Toole, Shay O’Toole, Jack Nugent, Bob O’Ceallaigh and Karl Moran.

Our neighbours at Shannonside cycling club are staging their annual charity sportive, the Tour of the Falling Leaves on October 2nd so, if you are free this is always a very enjoyable end of season spin.
