Weekend spins and next weeks events

Saturday 22nd spin. Going to Loftus Hall in the Hook peninsula to attend their bike week event. Planning to leave at 9AM from Aldi so we can get home as early as possible.


One for the Laydeez…

A5 Flyer-page-001

Tuesday nights: Liam Bennett Time Trial League

Liam-Bennett-Poster1  Click on thumbnail for details. A good varied list of time trials leading up to the county TT champs. Great events suitable for A4s and novices from our recent league as well as A1-3’s. You don’t need a TT bike and can measure your own progress over the six events. And all in memory of a fantastic cyclist we miss very much, unarguably one of Wexfords finest All Ireland winning hurlers and a undoubtedly an absolute gentleman.

Wendesday nights – SERC league, 7pm start at Toss Byrnes, Inch.

“Two races in the league each night. The first race is the A1-2 group with the A3’s handicapped. The second race will be even more popular, is the A4/Novice race. A continuation of the successful Slaney league. The race distance is 40km…. so it should suit a lot of riders at this standard. Remember the results of 4 races out of 5 count, so it aint too late to get in and try for the over all win. Also note for the first time there will be a team prize, based on the top 3 riders with points from a club, so that should add an extra dimension to the racing”

For the 40+ riders who rode the recent Slaney A4 league this is an ideal opportunity to continue the good work done in Davidstown. As a  separate race you don’t have the faster categories to worry about and there are three handicapped groups so everyone will be catered for on a good safe circuit. These two events should keep everyone busy for the next month or so!

National Championships

Finally, best of luck to Frank Dunne and Conchubhar O’Crualaoich who represent Slaney CC at the National Championships Vets race on Saturday in Carlingford, Co Louth.
