Sunday 3rd Feb 2013..Feb 3rd 2013 SundayPaddy Doran cropped

Southside Wheely Wheelers were delighted to welcome the excellent Paddy Doran to Kilmallock on
Saturday for a coaching session with the club. Paddy is a level three cycling coach and has trained
Olympians, Ras cyclists, countless national champions and national teams over the years so when
Paddy became available we jumped at the chance to get his expert advice for our club, if it’s good
enough for Olympians and professional cyclists its good enough for us.

Paddy spent the morning working with the underage cyclists starting out on the basics and
progressing on to art of sprinting. After Lunch we moved indoors where Paddy gave a presentation
on various aspects of training, whether it was for racing or the sportive cyclist Paddy was a
encyclopaedia of knowledge and was only delighted to pass it on. The importance of rest days and
structured training was particularly interesting, well done to Paul Gammell for arranging this training

Training continued last Sunday with a great spin on the current winter training route, we had 2
groups leaving the car park with a very fast group 1 and a social Group 2, everyone enjoyed a
great day out. Out cycling this morning were Stephen Finn, Paul Finn, Paul Gammell, Brendan
Houlihan, Jerry Herbert, Owen Tobin, Shane O’Brien, Mike Sexton, Donal Kelly, Michael Gammell,
Pat O’Donnell, TJ Mullane, Ger Finn, John Crowley, Garry Tierney, Willie McCarthy, Martin Lake, John
Carey, Eugene Manton, Brendan Daly.

The first sportive of the year takes place next Sunday in Killaloe, this is a 100km spin around lough
Derg so the views will be spectacular. Registration takes place in St. Annes primary school from
8.30am with the cycles starting at 11am. For those not taking part training will continue as usual
at 8.30 with two groups and a pace for all. As with all cycles we leave from the car park behind
Kilmallock cycles. Be safe be seen.
