Sunday Spin :

With the weather being dry and warm on Sunday morning there was a large turnout for both the early group and the main club spin. Two groups of 7 left Monaghan on the early loop of Monaghan, Middletown, Caledon , Aughnacloy and back to Emyvale where they joined the main spin at 9.30.

Around 40 cyclists formed into the 3 groups and headed off for Glaslough, Pipers Bridge, Castleshane, Clontibret, Blayney, Lough Eglish and down into Ballybay for the coffee stop. It was then on to Tullycorbet, Ardaghey and home via Monaghan.

The 6 youths followed group 2 as far as Glaslough before turning for Middletown, Caledon and back to Glaslough and home.

Mark Andrews competed in the cyclocross race in Armagh on Sunday. Mark finished the race, no mechanicals today, on a very muddy and sticky course. Well done Mark .

Best wishes to Lorraine Mullarkey, who crashed on a group training spin on a track in Dubai. Lorraine broke her collarbone in the crash, get well soon.


Majorca Trip

Last weekend 12 club members went cycling in Mallorca covering around 100 km per day in 30 degrees of heat. All the usual milestones were conquered with all the first timers cycling down and back up the famous Sa Colabra mountain. This is a 9.5km climb with a continuous 7% gradient so all that training up the Green Lane paid off.

The climbs at Lluc, Orient were also visited as well as tours through Petra and other scenic villages. On Sunday the group visited the outdoor cycling velodrome track at Sineu in the middle of the Island. After a few rounds everybody agreed it looks easier on the Tv than actually taking part. Sunday finished up with a visit to a hilltop monastery at Santa Margalida, followed up by a cycle to a lighthouse at Cap de Formentor on Monday.


Club Trip:

Anyone interested in the club weekend away in Donegal please contact Ann Marie McCarron asap. The cost is  €50 pps in the Mount Errigal hotel and this includes evening meal and B +B. Some members will cycle up to Letterkenny, while others intend to drive up and cycle a route when they get there.


High Nelly:

Could any outstanding sponsorship cards and monies please be returned to Patsy McQuillan or Martin Rushe asap.
