Wednesday’s evening Spin was well attended with 16 riders and continues to grow as does the Saturday spin. Also on Saturday Dara McKenna, Declan McEntee and Steve McCann travelled to the Sean Lynch Memorial Races in Athy hosted by Athy Wheelers CC. All men accounted well for themselves and finished well up in the bunch. Sunday’s Spin had almost 30 members meeting at the usual spot with another 10 joining up on the way through Monaghan. The sun shone for what was a great days cycling. Intrepid tourers Shay Mallon and Darren Fitzpatrick travelled to the north of England to complete the infamous Fred Whittington Challenge. This is no mean feat as the FW Challenge is probably one of the toughest sportive in Europe with a mountainous 180 kms and the indomitable Hard Knott Pass with its 30% gradient to be tackled. Well done Shay and Darren. Ultra-distance man Michéal Flood travelled to Derry with his loyal team of supporters to take on the Joe Barr 200 mile challenge. After a tough 10 1/2 hours Michéal succeeded in taking 3rd place overall against a top class field. Well done Michael and your support team.
