Post date: Mar 06, 2017 10:19:47 AM

On Saturday last a number of the youth team headed to Westport to do some recon work of the route for next weekend’s Youth Rás Mhaigh Eo. Conditions in the west of Ireland can be harsh at the best of times but on Saturday they were more extreme than the norm. The youth mentors and club would like to say a big thank you to Noel and John of Covey Wheelers Westport for having us over and taking such good care of us. Here's looking forward to next weekend!

Meanwhile back on terra firma and due to the adverse weather conditions the rest of the youth section took the wise decision to use the club's excellent indoor facilities to hone their skills in various aspects of cycling. Philip and his team of coaches worked the group on some skill work and watt bike testing along with some of the fundamentals of bike mechanics including tyre and tube changing.

Well done to all, the youths are the future of the club and are a credit to all their coaches mentors and parents. Keep it up and see ye on the road.. when you are passing me out!
