It’s all go for the Southside Wheely Wheelers at the moment.

Daithi Creedon, Big Dave Walsh, Brendan Houlihan, Stephen Finn and Mark Mullins headed to Kanturk to fly the racing flag. As it’s a three day event finishing Monday I’ll post full results during the week. Our underage star Mark Mullins performed well in his race on Saturday finishing in the bunch. He’s getting faster every time he goes out, well done Mark.

Ger Finn, Brendan Daly, Simon Kelly, Mike Gammell, Shane O’Brien and Dodo Kelly  left Kilmallock at 8.00am Sunday morning to visit the Vee. Travelling in glorious sunshine they passed through Knocklong, Ballylanders, Mitchelstown, Ballyporeen, Clogheen and up the famous and most beautiful Vee. Stopping for a few minutes to take in the view before heading home through Kildorrery to complete a very useful 130km. Great crack was had by all and no sheep were harmed on this journey!!

The Laura Lynn 60km Charity Cycle started in Granagh Sunday morning and saw yet more SWW members in action. Owen Tobin, John Carey, Mike Sexton, Brian McCarthy, Jimmy McCarthy, Gary Tierney, Matthew Gammell, Andrew Gubbins and Paul McCarthy. A great cause so well done for supporting it lads.

On Saturday, club member Stephen Hehir headed to Kerry and completed the 110km Dingle Peninsula Challenge, taking in the Connor Pass. Well done Stephen.

Underage Community Games training took place in Bruree GAA field Saturday afternoon. Well done to the kids and trainers. Same time, same place this week.

New members are always welcome to join our club, all you need is a bike and a helmet and you’re off. We have club spins Wednesday evening at 6.30, an easy paced cycle (perfect for beginners or those returning to cycling) at 9.30 Saturday morning and our Sunday spin at 8.30am. All leave the car park beside Kilmallock Cycles. There’s a group for everyone and every fitness level so don’t think you’ll be left behind. There’s plenty of chat, advice if you need it and you’ll get fit into the bargain. Keep an eye on our website www.southsidewheelywheelers.com or call into Paul in Kilmallock Cycles who’ll be happy to tell you about club activities.
