After the first few weeks of January, many people are faithfully engaged in new regimes such as dry January, couch to 5k (running) and couch to 50k (cycling) among many others. Emyvale CC’s Saturday and Sunday spins run all year round and with the impetus of making a clean start to the year, attendance has been well up. The development group, for novice members and those making a comeback from little activity has also been very well attended. Tommy “Megaphone” McCague’s weekly spin class has ben a big success once again this season and has resumed after Christmas for its final few weeks of high rev workouts. The Sunday before last, Declan “Dynamo” McEntee and Dara “the Dart” McKenna travelled once again over to McCrystal’s Cyclocross in Louth. Only this time it was for nothing less than the National Cyclocross Championships, pitting them against some of the top CX riders this country has to offer. Our competitors acquitted themselves very well and have every reason to be proud of their performances. Dara rode in the M40 category and fought fiercely right to the finish line. Declan rode with the M50’s and which was also an absolute ding-dong of a dog fight and came away with 4th place overall, just missing out on the podium. Well done Declan and Dara. Last Sunday saw the successful running of our annual hillclimb event. This year the money raised is being donated to the recovery fund for wee Ted McQuaid. We are happy to announce that over €1,000 has been raised for Ted and the committee would like to thank all doners for their generosity. Thank you also to Glynn and Grainne of Centra Emyvale for providing the refreshments and Marc Andrews of The Spin Doctor bike shop for the prizes for our winners who came in as follows: Overall winner - Declan McEntee - Emyvale CC First woman - Gabrielle Fox – Emyvale CC First Leisure cyclist - Aidan Fields – Emyvale CC First visitor - Barry Kelly - DBCC Last, but not least, thanks to our neighbouring clubs for their support and especially to the volunteers who gave up their time to make the running of the event possible. The next event date for your cycling diary is our annual 67km Reliability Run which is set for Sunday 26th February. Please note the following dates for your diary for 2023: Sunday 26th February - Reliability Run Sunday 18th June - Tour of Monaghan Sunday 23rd July - Emyvale Grand Prix Sunday 20th August - Bike the Blackwater
