A group of 20 headed off on the early loop of Monaghan, Middletown, Caledon  Rehaghy and Aughnacloy on Sunday ,morning, before joining the club spin at 9.30am. Group 1 and 2 headed off by Glaslough, Pipers Bridge, Castleshane, Clontibret, Blaney, Lough Eglish and down into Ballybay for the coffee stop, then on to Ardaghey and Monaghan.
