Southside Wheely Wheelers.

๐™Ž๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™™๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™Ž๐™ฅ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™จ 2021 Sunday 3rd October.
We escaped the worst of the weather on our Sunday spins and had decent enough conditions for all three groups – still great to have the numbers arriving on at 9:00 every Sunday morning for the club spins.
The orange group was three strong as Paul Gammell, Mags O’Gorman and Joe Carroll rolled out from Kilmallock in a bit of early drizzle but it soon cleared as they neared Athlacca – unexpected blue skies and a breeze greeted them as they cycled on in to the wind to Croom. Encouraged by the now bright sunshine and what had turned in to a tailwind they decided to bypass the coffee stop and continue on to Morenane Cross, almost free-wheeling to Hynes’ Cross with the wind at their backs. Joe & Mags dropped off the spin just outside Bruree as they had cycled to the start of the spin and Paul finished it out solo.
The white Group had Gerry Ryan as group lead and just one other SWW cyclist with him as we were delighted to welcome El Gleeson along for her first SWW spin – mighty going considering how the conditions looked this morning so well done on turning out for a cycle! They cycled from Kilmallock to Elton, through Knockainey and past Bruff Rugby Club to Bruff for coffee then back to Kilmallock via Bulgaden.
The Red Group had a few run-ins with the puncture fairy on their spin. Mike Davern was hit first on his way to Kilmallock, but was quickly back in action and took a short cut to meet the group.
Their route took them out through Knockainey, Hospital and Kilteely to Pallasgreen for the coffee stop where another puncture was encountered – Jerry Reidy this time, but he handled it with the efficiency of a formula one pitstop so there was no delay – no doubt the rest of the group were helping out as much as they could, between sups of their coffee!
The group covered 75km in total, coming back through Emly, Garryspillane and Kilfinane – there was a little more climbing than advertised but nothing they couldn’t handle so it was a great spin again for the red group – well done to Jerry Reidy, Tony Fitzgibbon, Paul Finn, Stephen Danagher, Mike Davern and Anne Goggin.

Yesterday there was a fine group of Wheelers out at the Killarney Cycling Club – Three Peaks Challenge – they were delighted to be rolling out as part of a charity sportive again, notwithstanding the fact that events like this are winding down for the year it was brilliant to get one under our belts again around a stunning route with Coom for Ireland’s highest pub and Moll’s Gap a couple of the highlights around the spectacular route that formed part of a brilliantly organised event

Sunday 6th February 2017 club members met at 8.30am and the main group met at 9.30am for our weekly Sunday morning training cycle. The weather was the main talking point of the day, storm force winds but at least it was not raining. The morning was not cold and this was evident as one cyclist was wearing shorts. Well done. Determined, enthusiastic and dedicated cyclists set off against the strong winds with cyclists finding shelter from the wind working as one group with the knowledge that we would return with the wind on our backs on the return journey home. Club Sunday training has now progressed from flat roads to taking on the challenge of the hills to develop our skills of climbing. Each Sunday we will have a number of major hills to prepare our club cyclists for the leisure cycling tours and the difficult mountains in the leisure tours. Well done to Gerard Finn, Sean Burchill, Daithi Creedon, Stephen Finn, Brendan Houlihan, Owen Tobin, Shane O’Brien, Michael Gammell, Tadhg Murphy, Paul Gammell, Jerry Ryan and Liam Carroll for attending training in such poor weather conditions.

Wednesday Night Light Cycle 2nd February at 7pm was also windy but a dry evening and an enjoyable way to train mid week to keep fit. Well done to Phyllis Richardson, Michelle Gammell, Ber Gammell, Shane Gubbins, Mike Murphy, Jerry Ryan, Paul Gammell, Owen Tobin, Brendan Houlihan, Daithi Creedon, Sean Burchill, Jerry Herbert and Gerard Finn.
