Weekly Report

Southside Wheely Wheelers Cycling Club.

Well done to all the Wednesday Night Riders who attended the Wednesday Night Light Cycle. Weather was very good, dry but a bit windy as we cycled up the street of Kilmallock. The 2 hills of the 3.7kms Quarry Hill circuit make this mid week cycle a real challenge but great training. We had two groups cycling and it is perfect to have a second group that allows you get fit at your pace. We had two cyclists out cycling last Wednesday night that were off the bike for a few months and they were able to do laps with us and call it a night when they had done a good workout. That’s what the Wednesday Night Light Cycle is all about as winter training is to be enjoyed and not to over train in winter  just keep your fitness and then in the new year start your training fresh with a good base fitness. Flashing lights, hi viz vests, arm bands, leg bands, helmet lights, you name it, we have it on our bicycles. Be safe, be seen, is what safe night cycling is all about as we start our cycle every Wednesday evening at 6.30pm. Our thanks to Edmond O’Reilly, Brian O’Shea, Adrian Gammell, Jerry Ryan, Ger Finn, Sean Burchill, John Carey, Brendan Houlihan and Paul Gammell.

Southside Wheely Wheelers cycle in Killarney.

Southside Wheely Wheelers cycle in Killarney. Following success of our cycling club end of season BBQ a few weeks ago, plans for a weekend cycling in Killarney was our next social occasion. Saturday November 19 at 11am bicycles were loaded in to vans and cyclists loaded in to cars and all transported to Killarney. After booking in to the Killarney Towers Hotel and changing in to our SWW club cycling gear we prepared our bicycles for an enjoyable 50kms cycle in beautiful sunshine and spectacular scenery. The last time we were in Killarney was for another successful cycle the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle and the weather was again perfect for cycling. The pace of the club cycle was at a controlled leisurely pace and we all cycled together in one large group of guys and gals all having a great laugh on our bikes. On our return to the hotel we went for a swim in the pool, the Jacuzzi steam room and sauna. We later enjoyed an evening meal together and then enjoyed an evening on the town of Killarney as we had developed a mighty thirst on the 50k cycle. Our club cyclists had a wheely great night. Two of our club cyclists even managed to get up early next morning for a cycle of 50kms over Molls Gap and had a swim in the hotel pool afterwards. We would like to thank all our club cyclists for making the weekend an outstanding success. I don’t know if we have any energy left for our Christmas party. Plans have already started on another weekend away before the cycling season starts in March 2012. Underage cycling continued on Saturday November 19 at 3pm. Cyclists and instructors met at our usual meeting place for training at the car park next to Kilmallock Cycles. Underage cycling is the future of our sport and Southside Wheely Wheelers are working hard on building a winning team of young cyclists for the 2012 racing season. Our club instructors are coaching our underage club cyclists with the basic modern cycling techniques that will help them win races next season but it is more important to enjoy cycling and have fun training and racing. Underage cyclists who attended training were Aishling Murphy, Aaron Passmore, Kate Passmore, Sarah Herbert, Eve Ryan, Brian Mc Carthy, Bob Keating, Thomas Manning, Eoin Murphy, Michael Gammell, Colm Hayes and Jack Kelly.
