Saturday Spin: On a perfect morning for cycling, the group did 100km loop of Clonmel, Rathgormac, Kilmacthomas and home the coast road.

G5: Sunscreen and lots of water were the order of the day for 9 cyclists heading out on the G5 leisure spin on another glorious Sunday in July. The group kicked off with a warm up spin around the Gold Coast loop before heading out along the coast road at a nice easy pace. Newcomer Tom was welcomed to G5 and introduced to group cycling etiquette. As it was his first group spin and such a warm day, he took the alternative to return home via Five Cross Roads escorted some of the way by group Captain Marion. The remainder continued to Seafield, through Ballylaneen and on to Kilmac joining up once again with Marion who had reserved a table in the shade at Kierseys. Refreshments were enjoyed by all and with the bodies recharged once again, the group continued on their journey to Mahon Bridge and along Carrick Road. Intense heat was experienced on route to Durrow before getting the welcome coastal breeze on road home. A most enjoyable 60k spin at an average of 20kph

G23k: The group took to the roads on their planned route which took them into the village of Ballinroad. It was then a steady climb at Deelish to Kilbrien with two water stops along the way. On reaching Beary's cross it was onto Millstreet and back onto the N72 towards Cappoquin. Coffee was at Harvey's and two of the group indulged in a Ben and Jerry's ice-cream. Back on the bike the group headed for home via Dromana bridge, Kilmolash and the Bog road. Dis 70km

Group 4 headed out the coast road on another beautiful sunny Sunday morning. We welcomed Pat & Richie joining us for the spin today. It was into a headwind to Bunmahon and then the climb to Kill. The road to Carroll's cross was busy so we were cycling in single file. Across the N25 to Newtown enjoying the cool breeze of the descent into Kilmacthomas and onto Mahon bridge where iced coffees were the ... See more

WEEKEND SPINS
Saturday spin had four starters, one turned off at Mahon Bridge, soon after another had a mechanical problem and had to call home to be collected. Two completed the 100km route in glorious sunshine.

G5 had 10 out on this sweltering Sunday, they headed out the Bog Road to Ballinameela where 2 decided it was too hot to continue. The rest carried onto Villierstown, Dromana, Cappoquin and Lismore for the coffee break and Ice cream where they met up with Majella and Pádraig from G4, Pádraig decided to come back with G5 so after a long break they headed home via Kilmolash and the Bog Road, many of them felt the heat today. It was great to have everyone back for the banter and catchup. I think it is the first time we had a mother and daughter on our spins - Geraldine and Claire. 57km at a very good average for such a hot day.

G23k: The group took to the road for the weekly Sunday spin traveling along the Bog Road and then turning for Cappoquin via the Kilmolash road. A decision was made to skip the Deerpark part of the spin and head straight for Lismore for the coffee stop. Back on the bikes it was home via Dromana Bridge, Kilmolash and Bog road. Dis 55km

It was great to be back to the group spin again on a fabulous sunny Sunday. Group 4 headed out the Bog Road to Cappoquin and onto Lismore. Turning right in Lismore along the sheltered route to Ballyduff for a quick photocall. Two of the group turned left heading back to Lismore and the remainder continued to Fermoy for the coffee stop. Meeting with some bikers a few considered a trade up for the spin home. Everyone refuelled it was back on the road to Tallow turning off on the scenic route through Conna. From Tallow it was onto Lismore then Cappoquin and back the N72 to Dungarvan with a headwind to keep everyone cool. A very enjoyable and hot spin 110Km at an average of 25.4Kmph.

Group 3 had eleven enthusiastic members delighted to be back to group cycling again and especially so on such a bright ... See more

Don't forget the suncream tomorrow, apply before your kit and leave it sink into your skin. Bring a travel size with you if you have one - to apply during your spin. And bring plenty of water!
