Sunday 8th December Wheely friendly Wheelers

It’s all in the name Southside Wheely Wheelers, we draw from all over South Limerick and North Cork with members coming from Ballingarry, Hospital, Knockainey, Kildollery, Newmarket, Kilmallock and Bruff just to mention a few places. We always have a welcome to the cyclist new to club cycling or just cycling so if you want to cycle with a club or train for one of the big sportives like the Ring of Kerry pop along for a spin and a chat.
Southside Wheely Wheelers training continued with our Wednesday night light cycle. It was cold but it isn’t winter now around Kilmallock if you don’t see the flashing lights and hi-viz gear of the Wheelers. It is great that we are still cycling mid-week, long may this mild weather continue. Out cycling were Ber Gammell, Michelle Gammell, Jerry Reidy, Jerry Herbert, Gerry Ryan and Declan McCarthy.
Saturday training continued with the all ability cycle With the group enjoying a usefull day in the saddle. Out cycling were Gerry Ryan, Liz leonard, Sean Burchill and a warm welcome to Martin McHugh to the SWW fold.
Sunday training took place in wintery conditions covering 72km in what felt like a lot more due to the head wind on the way home, those kilometres will stand to you in May. Out cycling were Pat O’Donnell, Dave Walsh, Michael Gammell, Mathew Gammell, Jerry Reidy, Martin lake and Eugene Manton.
Don’t forget guys we have ordered extra casual club clothing which would make an excellent stocking filler for your loved ones. When they are gone there gone so contact Jonathan on 0861080987.
Training continues this week with our Wednesday night light cycle @ 6.30. we are cycling a nice flat route. Saturday @ 9.30 is our all ability beginner/improver cycle where the distance and pace is decided by you the noobie. Sunday @ 8.30 is a longer cycle but no one should fear a Sunday cycle at this time of year, it is about recharging the batteries and working on the base fitness so pace isn’t everything. It’s a common problem this time of year that cyclist and clubs over do the pace, back it off and enjoy the spin.
Be safe be seen.

Southside Wheely Wheelers had a successful gear collection night on Tuesday 26th in Deebert House Hotel. We have ordered extra cycling and casual gear and we have added a few new bits and pieces which may make an ideal stocking filler so we will have a further gear collection night before Christmas for anyone interested.
Training continued Wednesday night with a good crew out keeping the legs ticking over without any power strike in sight. Out cycling were Jerry Herbert, Jerry Reidy, Declan McCarthy, Ber Gammell, Paul Gammell, Jerry Ryan and Sean Burchill.
Saturday saw the club turn out in strength to support the Johnny Walsh benefit cycle in Athlacca who we wish all the best in your recovery. Spin was a lovely 70km route which was well run and marshalled. Out cycling were Ger Finn, Jerry Herbert, Jerry Ryan, Robert Shanahan, Declan McCarthy, Jerry Reidy, Ed O’Reilly, Eugene Manton, Shane O’Brien, Joe Carroll, Mathew Gammell, Stephen Finn, Donal Kelly, Sean Burchill, Tadhg Murphy, Dave Curley and James McCarthy.
Well done to Liz Leonard who completed the Waterford half marathon.
Sunday training continued with a Martin Lake, Paul Gammell and Big Dave Walsh headed out on Sunday morning for a 60km spin heading up to Kilfinane out to Mitchelstown, Ballylanders and back to Kilmallock.
Training will continue this week with our Wednesday night light cycle @ 6.30, lights and hi-viz gear is a must and the way the weather is multiple layers of clothing. Saturday is our beginner/improver all ability cycle which is ideal for the beginner cyclist, cyclist returning to the saddle or cyclist unable to make the Sunday cycle. Sunday is a longer cycle but as is with all club spins be it training or sportives no one gets left behind.
Be safe be seen.
