For those not racing or supporting the marathon on Sunday, we will be meeting at Westwood in Clontarf at 8.20am for an 8.30am departure.
Group 1 will be doing a route (approximately 50km) that will head to North County Dublin with Bike Lead Trish Eadie.
Group 2 will be doing a route (approximately 60km) that will also head to North County Dublin with Bike Lead John Clarke.
As always, please remember good bike discipline while out on a club spin:
** There is one cycle lead – and that person is responsible for the route.
** Tight two by two groups, with regular up-and-overs and with a single-file transition are the hallmarks of a disciplined cycle group. No “half wheeling”!
** Each group has a target average speed – this should be maintained. Surges in speed (lead from the front) leads to a dragging-out of the group and members get left behind.
** Traffic lights must be obeyed – pedestrian and traffic!
** Groups should not break-up on the flat. If they do, then they should re-group as soon as reasonably practicable.
Myself and John K are currently working on our 2018 cycling programme so watch this space…
