***Some picture from Bil Jordan HERE . Many thanks to everyone who took part or helped on the day. We had more tham double the number from last year and the event raised €530 for Be Smear Aware. we had glorious weather and hope every one enjoyed the spin. Don’t forget Slaney tours leave the Duffry Gate every Sunday at 10am over the winter and all are welcome. While the distance and pace may be a bit harder than last Sunday if we have enough people we would be able to have a choice of a faster and slower paced group each Sunday. ***
Don’t forgot tomorrows ladies tour beginning at 10am from the Riverside Hotel carpark. Rita is hoping for a good turn out of ladies for the event but as the event is also to raise funds for the “Be Smear Aware” campaign the lads are also invited to take part and the Sunday tour will be joining the ride. Entry is €10 with a goodie bag and a prize of a meal for two in Kellys Hotel for the best dressed (male or female!). Ride will be on the N11 south, about 20km and about 50kms. Refreshments in the Riverside afterwards.
As a follow on from the event a series of training/coaching days for ladies will be held starting in November. The idea is to improve riding and handling skills and give an introduction to group riding and race tactics. Ideal for anyone coming to cycling from a triathlon or running background. Details later.
