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
