DCC notes 19th January

The third weekend in the never ending month was very cold and frosty but beautifully bright and crisp. A good crew tumbled out of bed Sunday morning and with a few tweaks to chosen routes it was business as usual. The thoughts of some warm weather cycling in the coming months keeping everyone focused. Richie and Paul getting a headstart with some bare legs on show in Alicante this week.
Here's how we rolled….

G1 had 8 out on Sunday with a few changes made to chosen route it was off to Lismore, Tallow, Fermoy, Clondulane, Ballyduff and back down Tallow hill. A puncture at Tallow was swiftly dealt with and it was homeward bound on the main road. 100k @30kph.

A bakers dozen of Group 3 cyclists departed the Civic office all well layered to withstand the prevailing sub zero temperatures. An early decision was made to amend the proposed route and stay on the N25 as it had been salted and offered the safest option. The blood was beginning to warm as we crested the Pike Hill where a quick phone call was made to check on one of our number who was missing. He had decided it was too cold and was already at home. As we approached Leamybrien one rider hit an unidentified object in the hard shoulder and punctured both wheels. Repairs quickly carried out we were on our way again passing through the freezer otherwise known as Ballyduff before reaching the warmth of Kilmeaden and a welcome coffee. Warmed up and refreshed it was back on the road again and heading for home, 75 frosty kilometres completed at 27. 5kph.

It was a spin of two halves in different directions for G4 on a cold and frosty January morning. After a hilly spin last week a flater route was chosen for this Sunday. The group headed to 5X roads turning left and onto Griffin's garage. Turning left again towards Mahon Bridge and then left again onto the Carrick road to head for Lemmybrien. There were patches of ice in sheltered parts of the road. It seemed strange to be heading towards ... See more

Youth Racing Notes

All roads led to Kanturk today 12/1 as Munster’s top underage cyclists battled it out for places on the 2020 Munster Squads.

Very well done to all DCC riders in action with Eoghan, Max, David and Cal in the under 14 event and both Mark and Kyle in the junior U18. All of the lads put in very strong rides which bodes well for the Ireland squad selection day next month. 🚴💪 special welcome to Max Fitzgerald on his DCC debut. Watch this space......🚴

Blue skies 🌞"the calm before the storm"

DCC notes 12th Jan 2020

The proverbial calm before the storm was very evident on Sunday last. A beautiful morning bathed in winter sunshine, calm with very light winds, a perfect morning for cycling.
Here are the notes from the road ….

Group 1 had 14 out on a beautiful morning for cycling The Ballymac, Clonmel, Ardfinnan, Clogheen, The Vee, Cappoquin, home circuit was the chosen route. One faller on a greasy roundabout in Ardfinnan but nothing too serious.105k @ 30kph. Another good solid steady controlled winter spin enjoyed by all!

G3 had 14 starters on Sunday picking up 4 more on route. A good tempo to Cappoquin to warm everybody up. Turning left for Camphire it was a long bumpy trek on bad roads across to Tallow. A steady climb in glorious sunshine up the hill and a lovely controlled descent to Youghal bridge. Wind to our backs it was a peppy spin home. 85 solid kilometers at 28 kph, a good winter spin!

Group 4 headed off from Dungarvan on a cold but dry January morning. We encountered some foggy conditions around Affane and Cappoquin but thankfully the sun was out as we made our way through Dromana and into Villerstown. Stopping for a puncture near Aglish we were glad of the sunny conditions to keep us warm. Onwards towards Clashmore there was a noticeable drop in temperatures on sheltered parts of the road. The hot tea and coffee was very welcome in Clashmore. After the photo it was back on the bikes to tackle the climb on the mountain road from Clashmore. Everyone took the long climb at their own pace steadily to the top regrouping before heading for the N25. A few of the group cut off early but most opted for the longer route to Kiely's cross and home via Old Parish. Some decided they didn't have enough climbing and headed to Ring via Seaview for the climb back to Robert's cross and back to Dungarvan. A spin of almost 80Km with 675m climbing on what turned out to be a sunny January Sunday.
