Stephen & Nicolas Roche on Late Late Show

Hi all, I hope everyone is keeping fit. Just a quick note to say Stephen & Nicolas Roche on Late Late Show tonight (13th Nov) .

Training Spins

With the recent spell of  awful weather its been difficult to keep our regular winter spins going and very easy for us to get lazy and push the bike aside and lose all the fitness we’ve gained in recent months.The good news is that the forecast isnt too bad for the next few days and its expected to get dry and cold so there should be no excuse not to get back out on the bike.Hope to see as many as possible at McElligotts wed night for our weekly night time spin.

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.

Day Care Center Presentation

On thurs 22 Oct Currow CC will officially present Castleisland day care center  with the cheque for the funds raised in conjunction with our recent leisure cycle.The presentation will be held at 7pm in the day care center and we would hope that as many club members as possible will attend to mark what was a fantastic leisure tour and a huge fund raiser.


Dates for Your Diary

Hi Folks

Congratulations to all who took part in the Fund Raising Event for Castleisland Day Centre on September 27th last. A major success, plenty of positive feedback and every one returned safely. A special mention for John Breen for his major contribution.

At the club meeting on the 24th, a number of decisions were taken;

Dates for Your Diary;

Winter Training; Due to the loss of day light hours, Club Training will take place over the winter each Wednesday evening, leaving MacElligotts, Castleisland at 7.00 pm, and doing one or two laps out to Ballycarthy roundabout and back. Front and rear lights are mandatory, and Hi-Vis is recommended. This training will take place regardless of the weather with the exception of ice/freezing temperatures. A further weekend session will probably also be run, depending on interest levels. It would be a shame to let our current fitness levels fade over the Winter.

October 24/25; We will take a social cycle, leaving Currow at 11.00am, destination to be decided, one night B&B and return on Sunday, somewhere in the 35 – 45 mile radius, all suggestions greatly appreciated. Kenmare looks like a possibility. Please confirm your participation by text to me no later than 7th of October. Support vehicle will accompany.

December 5th; Club Christmas Social in KIllarney, Hotel function room provisionally booked, however I will need confirmed numbers no later that the 15th of October. Set menu, usual fare €39 pp.

AGM; Date to be confirmed, but will be end of November.

Due to the greater flexibility of the web site as a means of keeping club members fully informed about developments, I will use the site as the ‘main notice board’ and will send a simple text “Check Site for Update” in future.

Kind Regards

Eamonn Collier
