As the winter nights close in and the summer cycling becomes a memory our thoughts are turning to our now annual warm weather cycling holiday to the beautiful island of Mallorca. The dates for this year's trip are Friday 10th April (Good Friday) until Friday 17th April. Our base will be the Playa Mar Hotel in Port de Pollenca in the capable hands of Stuart Hall Cycling holidays. There are groups to suit all levels of cyclists from the pros to novices and all terrains and distances are covered. As it is a family hotel non cyclists are most welcome to join in the fun.
For the moment we just need to confirm numbers. All enquires or to register your interest please contact Carol Byrne on 0876730604 or email carolmbyrne99@gmail.com Places are limited so get booking folks 😎

The bright October weather continues for DCC on their Sunday spins. Here's this week's roundup.

SPIN REPORTS

G5 were smaller in numbers on Sunday as some riders in the group took to the roads on Saturday this week. However, 4 enthusiasts set out on the scheduled route along the coast road. A minor mechanical endured by a lady rider early in the spin was ably sorted by the captain and the group continued on their journey to Durrow, Mahon Bridge and Kilmacthomas. The staff in Kierseys earned their crust when the café filled with a sea of cyclists including G5, G23k and the backroad group from DCC. John joined the group on the homeward journey by 5 Cross Roads completing 50k @ 20kph. This is the ideal time for newcomers to group cycling to try out spins with G5. If you've been thinking about it, just do it, you won't regret it. Also an ideal time for some old timers who may have lapsed to return to leisurely Sunday spins.

G23k: The sunday spin took the group out of Dungarvan along the coast road towards Seafield turning left for Kilmac for the coffee at Kiersey's. Three members of the triathlon club joined the group deciding to join us for the coffee. At kiersey's the group were greeted by the arrival of group 5 and shortly after that the Backroad group . Photo taken the group headed for Fews and then onto Mahon bridge. The group turned for Leamybrien back on the N25 turning left for Durrow back onto the coast road for Home . A spin around town brought the distance to 60km avg 23kph arriving home before the shower of rain.

Group 4 set off on a bright October morning out the Lismore road towards the Welcome Inn. We welcomed Gregory to the group cycling with us for the first time. We were also joined by some cyclists from Group 3 along the way. Taking the second right (not left as stated in the route posted) we were heading for the mountains going through Ballynamult and climbing to the plateau in an area known as Priesttown, somewhere along the way ...

Favourable weather conditions for cycling in between the rain

SPIN REPORTS

Group 5 had 7 riders out on the first Sunday in October to do a classic route that should’ve included Dromana & Villierstown. However, out of pure kindness to a returning member who didn’t have the legs for it, the group rejigged the route to take out a hill or two. It was such a bright & sunny day no-one minded – just to be out was a delight and the route still took in Cappoquin & Lismore. The banter and chat as happy as ever, the hot cuppa (and a sausage roll/bar/scone) was enjoyed in Lismore where the group picked up two more for the return and met up with G23 who kindly took the photo of G5. A happy spin of 50km at 22kph – pure class lads!

G23k : The weather was favourable for the sunday spin which took the group out of the town towards the Bog road turning left on the Calshmore road for Aglish . The group then cycled from Aglish through Villierstown and onto Dromana . On reaching Cappoquin the group turned left at the boat house and headed for Dearpark and then onto Lismore for the much needed Coffee. At lismore the group was greeted by the departing Group5 and the incoming members of the dungarvan triathlon club. Refueled the group headed back into Cappoquin turning right at Richmond house meeting group 4 coming in the opposite direction. The group then headed along the Kilmoash road back onto the Clashmore road turning for the Bog road for home. Dis 70km avg 23kph

On a bright October morning after the bad weather during the week Group 4 set off from Dungarvan out the N25 turning left at Ring cross and then right to the climb up the hairpin bends on the old Cork road. Once at the top it was onwards on the N25 to Kiely's cross then turning left for a fast descent to Ardmore. A quick stop for the customary photo as two of the group headed back via Old Parish and Ring. The others continued through Piltown and Kinsalebeg and onto Clashmore for the coffee stop. After some ... See more
