Training continues this week with our Wednesday night light cycle at 6.30. We are in wind down mode at this time of year so the pace and distance is handy just make sure to bring your lights and Hi-Viz gear and of course a helmet.
Saturday @ 9.30 is our all ability beginner/improver cycle where you decide the pace and distance while being accompanied by some experienced cyclists who are there to help you.
Sunday @8.30 is a longer cycle but it is not a race so it is just about getting out and keeping the legs turning over. As with all our cycles we depart from the car park beside Kilmallock Cycles.
