SOUTHSIDE WHEELY WHEELERS: Southside Wheely Wheelers continued the Sportive touring season in glorious sunshine with a hugely enjoyable An Post Rebel Tour in West Cork on Saturday the 13th of September, since moving location to Glengarriff last year this tour has turned into one of the most scenic and challenging tours around. There were two tough routes of 85km and 160km with the latter including the toblerone road of Reentrisk and two climbs of the Healy Pass. Big Dave Walsh, Declan McCarthy, Ger Finn [who brought the puncture fairy with him], Mathew Gammell, Jerry Herbert, and Pat O’Donnell completed the 160 and Sean Burchill, Jerry Ryan, John Crowley and Donie Mulcahy completed the challenging 85km, Well done all Wheelers and family.
King of the Hill - Our King of the Hill continued this week on Tuesday the 10th with a fun evening tearing up Ballyorgan , Paul and Michelle Gammell finished joint first with the most accurate time. This week is our final week of this fun challenge and the location of event will be revealed on the night to prevent any snakey training. Keep your phones close by for the text for the location. Wednesday night training jumped the fence into the time trial game with a flat time trial starting and finishing in Bruff RFC. Most people hadn’t experienced the eye ball out experience of a time trial but by the end everyone was in agreement that 9km never seemed so far. Big Dave Walsh was the most accurate man around this route.
Training this week resumes with our Wednesday evening cycle @ 6.30 , having fun while getting fit has never been so easy so come along and we will find a group for you. Please make sure to bring lights and reflective gear as its getting dark early.
Saturday is our beginner/improver cycle which is a great way to get into or get back into cycling,this is lead by some of our experienced cyclists who will help get you used to cycling in a group. Sunday training is a little more challenging but equally enjoyable. As with all our cycles we depart from the car park beside Kilmallock Cycles
