Malin 2 Mizen 2010

We had a very productive meeting lastnight about malin to mizen next year and got some possible routes for ye to decide on.This seriously is a chance of a lifetime and would be an amazing opportunity for all club members and something we can look back on in years to come.

There are 3 possible routes so far to chose along with do we cycle south-north or north-south and the routes are basically Shortest route,Most scenic route or best roads route
1 – SHORTEST ROUTE up the midlands not too exciting but sheltered 380 miles
2 – SCENIC ROUTE Lahinch,cliffs of Moher etc  exposed 414 miles
3 – BEST ROADS midlands birr ferbane etc wide open roads and traffic 40 miles

400 miles of happiness

keep an eye on site as we need to have a meeting in next week to finalize things

Christmas Party 5th Dec

After whats been a great year for Currow CC so far our next major gathering is for our Christmas party on Dec 5th in Killarney. Its a great occasion and a chance for all cyclists and their significant others to socilaize and have a few refreshments or two.

Malin to Mizen.

There is a  Malin 2 Mizen brainstorming gathering  on thurs 28th at 8:30 at Tom Kenny’s house. The main reason for the gathering to to see logistically if the cycle is possible and if so try and organise some sort of template for a route.its a informal get together to trash out ideas before we make any decisions when a proper meeting will be called.
