Summer Hazard Warning
With the summer finally here, recent discussion at a DCC committee meeting centred around summer cycling and some of the risks that come with taking off for a gallop in the long-awaited summer sun. The sun as welcome as it can create major visibility issues for drivers and cyclists alike... in short, a low evening sun elevates greatly the risk to cyclists.

With this, we would encourage all DCC members to use your lights always -flashing lights back and front, when heading out in the evening with a high risk of a low sun shining behind or in front of you.

While some cyclists are always keen to look their best on the roads ... Please do not be worried that lights will take in any way from the โ€˜cool lookโ€™ you are going for !!

Those very small, low powered items may just save your life someday or prevent a serious incident.

Be safe ... be seen .. and enjoy the summer miles ....from DCC committee.

A busy week for DCC cyclists. well done to Mark MC Garry for achieving double wins this weekend. Our intrepid 'older' cyclists were well represented across the country too. Reports to follow.

SPIN REPORTS

The Saturday club had 12 out on an extremely windy morn. Off up Colligan in the headwind but making good progress just the same. Up and accross Knocklofty turning left for Ardfinnan and Clogheen. Coffee was most welcome after the constant battle with the wind and before the Vee climb. A heavy shower on the assent was followed by beautiful sunshine showcasing the beautiful blooms to perfection. Finally the promised tailwind on the descent to Cappoquin and a fast clip home. 95k at 30kph with 900m climbing for good measure ๐Ÿ˜Š

G5 deviated slightly at the start from the scheduled route by cycling along the Cappoquin road and turning left at the welcome inn, where we were greeted by a spirited Jack Russell. The 14 strong group made their way through Kereen to Clashmore where thankfully we had missed the showers. With plenty of roll ups and conversations we went onward to Ardmore where we stopped for the cuppa and weekly catch up. In warm sunshine the group climbed out of Ardmore, took in the scenery of Old Parish and flew home with the aid of the descent. A scenic 65k at aver 20kph.

G23k: G23k headed out of Dungarvan along the bog road onto the Clashmore road . A quick water stop at kereen the group was led through Clashmore by some friendly Cattle . A stop under the bypass for 2 mins at Kinsale Beg due to a heavy shower the group continued onto Ardmore for coffee at the Farmers market. The group then headed out of Ardmore for Old parish . A decision to detour to ring the scenic route brought in some interesting climbs but was made up for by the beautiful views of Helvic . Cycling through Ring the group headed for home as the dark clouds lumed in the distance . Dis 75km avg 23kph

Group 4 set off from Dungarvan on a bright June morning heading west to ... See more
