The hardy boys and girls of DCC braving the elements this weekend. πŸ˜ƒ

A combination of weather and socializing played havoc with group activities this weekend with numbers down on Sunday, however the murky damp conditions suited the Cyclocross boys hard at work or play in Cork! Here are the notes from the road….
G4:On a windy December morning with the clouds gathering it was an initial dash for shelter to avoid getting wet before we started. Following a risk assessment and tapping into the local knowledge the it was decided to avoid the exposed road from Newcastle to Cappoquin with the stong winds and the threat of rain or even snow on high ground. While deciding on the best route to take John from Group 3 shared his route for the day which in the circumstances was the best option. With a few missing from both groups we joined forces and set off out the Bog road to Kilmolash and onto Cappoquin. There was a headwind but the road was sheltered and the group of 11 making it easier on everyone. From Cappoquin we turned left heading over the Bridge and into Lismore via Deerpark. We continued through Lismore and onto the top of Tallow hill turning right for Ballyduff and back to Lismore again. At this stage G4 decided to stop for a break and G3 continued back to Dungarvan. Thanks a million John for sharing this route with us. We avoided the next shower by extending the coffee break and once the rain cleared it was a fast spin back to Dungarvan with a little aid from a tailwind. We welcomed Paul to the group joining us from G23K. A dry but mucky spin of 75.7Km. Not a day to worry too much about the average but we ended up at 25Kmph. The trip to Newcastle for another day!

G5:At the outset, there was much debate on Sunday morning, as G5 were huddled at the bus shelter, as to whether the spin should actually go ahead. It was indeed very tempting to just cross the road to The Creamery for coffee. However, the rain quickly dissipated and a decision was taken that Groups 5 and 23k would join forces and set out together along the coast road ... See more

1st day of Winter and all groups enjoying the seasonal weather...

The cold crisp weather on Sunday certainly lended to the build up of the festive atmosphere. All groups had good numbers on the road, here's how we rolled….
Group 1 recent recruitment drive has been most successful and the group had 16 on the road on Sunday. The route took in the Carrick road, Scrouty, Portlaw, Kilmeaden. 95km and all home safely. Jason and Darren took park in round 5 of the Munster Cyclocross league hosted by Upperchurch Drombane CC and a great day out was had.
Group 3 rolled out with ten on a chilly but nice winter's morning for cycling. The chill was quickly forgotten as they made their way over the testing drags from Ballylaneen to Kill. The pace picked up on the flatter section to Kilmeaden and the N25 to Carrolls Cross. As they travelled on towards Newtown Donal suffered his third puncture in the same wheel and decided to phone a friend and call it a day. The road from Kilmac to Fews threw up some more testing drags before reaching Mahon Bridge and the familiar road home. Another enjoyable spin in great company, 80k travelled at 26.5kph.
Group 4 set out from Dungarvan on a chilly Sunday in December with a nice group of 9 cyclists including Declan's brother Kevin enjoying some Dungarvan hospitality for the weekend. A bit of a headwind to Cappoquin and a bit more sheltered as we headed to Lismore. Everyone was finally warm after the climb through Lismore and on to the top of Tallow hill. Turning right it was up and down to Ballyduff and then back to Lismore again the smell of coffee luring us on the descent. Hot drinks were welcome along with the chat and banter and meeting fellow cyclists from group 23K. The last leg of the spin was back along the N72 to Dungarvan with 3 of the group taking the option to burn the pace half way along the Military road. A pleasant winter spin 70Km at 25Kmph.
G23k: The group changed its planned route due to roadworks at Camphire . They cycled out the N72 turning right for the Clonmel road and a steady climb up ... See more
