We have beautiful weather at the moment so great times for out on the bike,
The Tuesday evening spins are going from strength to strength. This week it was a 50km hilly spin around the sawmill loop, this is great preparation for longer sportives, like the Pieta House on Sunday or the upcoming Western Lakes Sportive. As you can see by the photo it was well attended and great weather and there is a few budding Chris Frooms or Lizzy Armatage in the making.
The Thursday spins are going well also with several groups on the road, keep it up.
The Tuam Pieta House fund raiser is on this Sunday June the 5th, this is a great local event with great support and refreshments. There is a 45km and 100km route so a route for all WLCC members. Keep an eye on Facebook as a group may cycle from Cornmarket on Sunday morning to Cross. It promised hot so make sure plenty of water and sun cream as you could burn to bits on the bike and not even know it and also heat stroke.
This week saw the second round of the Western/Covey League on the same Srah Loop. It was well attended by both clubs. The top of the table is still John O Halloran but he is surrounded by Covey members, the Covey's are way out in front in the club points so a big turn out is required for the 3rd and final event. This will be a lap of Mauria Lukes and back, with refreshments and prizes on the night, at least its only one lap.
