Swings & Roundabouts….

This Sunday Phil Skeltons Swings & Roundabouts family cycle in aid of Wexford Hospice Home care takes place. Starting and finishing at the Wexford Harbour Boat & Tennis Club  the event covers two short routes,10 and 30 miles, suitable for all levels of cyclist. The ride will be followed by a free BBQ at the Boat club and the entry is just €15. I know Phil has put a lot of effort into organising and promoting this ride so lets give him our support on this event.

Ferns St Lukes 2013

Well done to all involved in the Ferns /St Lukes Sportive which goes from strength to strength and this year raised a whopping €10,500 for St Lukes. Well done to Ger and Teo Leacy and all the event organisers and helpers. A great event, a worthy cause and big cheque!


Mick Howe, Davy Hynes and I will be bringing our young lads for a few laps of  the Davidstown circuit on Saturday morning at 10.30am if anyone wants to join in for a few laps.


Wexford Wheelers hold their Bike Shop League prizegiving and BBQ at the Wexford Boat club on Friday evening at 8pm. All particiapnts in the league are invited to attend, not only the prizewinners, and I was there last year and its a great night. Big thanks to Wexford Wheelers for the great series of races they put on and to Johnny Gordon at the Bike Shop for his continued sponsorship of this league and also his sponsorship of the recent National Youth Cycling Champs in Enniscorthy.
