Clonmel CC Ladies Spin 8th July

Its not often that I’m impressed and usually with the bike progression takes from a few weeks to a few years to see, but tonight in only 4-5 weeks I saw a very well drilled ladies group going up and over , calling cars , calling holes and generally enjoying being on the bike.  5 Weeks ago Roseanne, Rhona , Annie, Rebeccca , Anne, Claire, Bernadette, Hilda and Gillian had never ridden in a group, on open roads, up and over meant nothing to them but not anymore they have become a very confident bunch of open road cyclists. The ladies have progressed so much they now even have the lingo and cycling habits of any good racer and some have even taken to the mid week  “sneaky training” so we wont mention any names. Its great to see a ladies section developing and we are very proud of Paul O Neill , Padraig, Paul and “Jack” for giving up their Tuesday evenings to make sure all our ladies get home safe and sound.

The Ladies spin starts at 7pm on Tuesday from LIT on the Bypass and again from the Park Hotel at 6:30PM on Friday evenings. There is also a 50km spin from the Park Hotel next Sunday at 9am

Club Spin 23th Feb 2014

With the mornings bad forecast only 8 riders turned up the spin today. Fresh back from Calcutta after doing a humanitarian stint out there was Mark Bergin so kudos to you Mark the world needs more guys like you helping instead of giving. So Lee, Mark, Paddy,Keith, Dixie, TJ of (all of your Life Fittness Gym Cashel )and Jack headed out of Clonmel toward Ballyporeen this week as the wind again decided the route from there onto Kilbehnenny they headed  but after 40kms Mark’s Jetlag was starting to catch up and he headed home with Jack…. The group now 6 they passed Kilbehenny on their way to Cahir and with wind on their side they flew along with and average speed of 30kmph for the 95Km spin today ..
