Southside Wheely Wheelers. First group of Southside Wheely Wheelers club cyclists met at 8.30am and cycled for one hour before meeting the main group of club cyclists at 9.30am on Sunday morning 30th January. Fair play to all enthusiastic club cyclists who turned up at the Castle car park Kilmallock on such a cold frosty morning. When the first group met the second group at 9.30am, the morning was so cold that their drinking bottles were like a slush puppy full of ice, now that’s cold. Club photo was taken before cyclists cycled off in to the cold morning air. Roads were dry and perfectly safe for cycling. Cyclists completed 100kms, 75kms and 50kms as all cyclists were catered for with a distance and cycling pace to suit all cycling abilities.
