Our under 16 cyclists completed a 60kms training cycle on Saturday with at an average speed of 30kms. Our under 14 years and under 12 years were also attended the Kanturk training camp and enjoyed group cycling. Cyclists enjoyed a deserved evening meal after completing an enjoyable day on the bike. On Sunday our club underage cyclists were training on the new cycling track in Kanturk. Intense speed training on the outdoor velodrome cycling track was supervised by cycling Ireland coaches, members of the Kanturk Cycling Club along with our own Southside Wheely Wheelers Cycling Club coaches. The wet conditions could not dampen their spirits and they all enjoyed the weekend cycling. Cyclists who attended the Kanturk training camp were Aaron Walsh, Brian McCarty, Eoin Murphy, Eve Ryan, Thomas Manning, and Cain Lynch. Special thank you to club coaches who helped in Kanturk, Jan Murphy, Tagdh Murphy, Owen Tobin, Willie McCarty, Paul Gammell and Daithi Creedon.

Weekly Underage cycling training also continued in Kilmallock at 3pm Saturday December 10 and our young club cyclists had a very good training session and sprint training session. Wheely well done to Mark Mullins, Aaron Passmore, Kate Passmore , Colm Hayes, Jamie Harte, Stephen Sexton, Brian Sexton. This week’s instructors were Paul Gammell and Mike Sexton.

Wednesday Night Light Cycle was a hugh success with 3 groups our enjoying the thrill of night cycling. The evening was cool but the pace was hot as cyclists completed laps of the Kilmallock Quarry Hill circuit in dry cool but enjoyable cycling conditions. Next Wednesday 14th December will be our last Wednesday Night Light cycle before Christmas. We would like to thank all the Wednesday Night Riders for cycling every Wednesday evening and making night light cycling wheely great fun, we hope to restart in the New Year. Wheely well done to Ger Finn, Michael Reale, Jerry Ryan, Willie McCarthy, Mike Sexton, John Carey, Robert Shanahan, Sean Burchill, Paul Gammell, Edmond O’Reilly and Brendan Houlihan.

Saturday December 3 Southside Wheely Wheelers had two groups out cycling, one group met at 8am and the second group met at the later time of 9.30am. Cyclists met on a very cold morning with freezing minus 3deg tempetures. Cyclists enjoyed a fast cycle and would you believe it, we also had time for a walk as we reached very icy roads near Ballagran, so off the bikes and legged it off down the road to the amusement of passing motorists, who ever said cycling was boring. Out enjoying the walk and cycle were Paul Gammell, Mike Sexton, David Kelly, Michael Gammell, and Jerry Ryan.

Sunday December 4 at 8.30am cyclists met at the car park next to Kilmalock Cycles. Two groups left Kilmallock and completed an 80kms training spin to Knocklong, Ballylanders, Mitchelstown, Glanworth, Kildorrery, Ardpatrick and home. Sunday was a recipe of tough cycling, adding strong winds to horizontal rain on hilly roads suggests that our club cyclists are made of stern stuff no matter what the weather throws at us we push on regardless. Wheely well done to Owen Tobin, Pat O’Donnell, Shane O Brien, Stephen Finn, Brendan Houlihan, Dave Walsh, Jimmy Lillis, John Carey, Mike Sexton, Aaron Walsh, Willie McCarty and Tagdh Murphy.
