Dungarvan CC Club Notes 31st March 2014

Club Kit and Orders
All the Kit orders have arrived and are packed, we will have the kit in Paddy Morrisey’s for Collection this Saturday 5th of April. We will be serving those who have ordered Kit first. If you can’t make the Saturday, please let us know in advance, you can give Derek Troy a call on 086-3109440 to arrange collection. Also Folks, a gentle reminder, No cash, no kit 🙂

Group Spins/Race Update

With the weather almost becoming seasonal again and the hour changing the weekend we should be looking forward to a few mid week spins now shortly. This past weekend we had decent numbers on the club runs. Group 2 headed for the coast and went Bonmahon, Kill, Kilmeaden and back for Dungarvan. Group 3 headed in a similar direction, taking in Seafield, Kilmacthomas, Carrick and back to Dungarvan.

We also had a number of Club members tackle Clogheen Vee Challenge on Sunday, so fair play to all the Shams that completed that successfully. If anyone is completing a Sportive or the like, if there are any photos or updates afterwards please do let us know, it would be great to publicize these more.

On the race front we had a few club members make the trip to Minane Bridge for the Aquablue Classic in Cork, Stephen Murray took home 4th Place in the A1 Race in very Spring Classics weather. Well done to Stephen on his placing and fair play to all those who raced in that weather.

Introductory Spin

The introductory spin is working out well with numbers increasing week on week. There will be another couple of weeks of this spin and then we will look to get a Group 4 running every sunday.

Please contact the club on info@dungarvancc.com or drop your name into Paddy Morrissey in Cyclesports or Tony or Siobhan O’Mahony in O’Mahony Cycles.

Predict Your Time League Race
The Predict your Time TT League once again kindly sponsored by Liam Rossister Meats will be back on your calendar for the 2nd of April (6:15 for the first couple of weeks) and will run for 5 weeks.

The open race is scheduled for the 15th of June.

With the PYT League and League Race, we will be looking for volunteers to marshal, if you do not volunteer we will end up drawing names from a hat and scheduling marshalling duties each week for people.

Cycling Quote

“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking”.

~Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author.
