Group 5 stats from yesterday (sat 4th):

100k
800m climbing
Coast road - arklow - Gorey ra - ballymoney - n11 - Wicklow - home.
27k avg
10 in group
Day of attrition with cold, rain and lots in between but thankfully no ice as none of us bothered to check the forum beforehand!!
We pushed on in some sections just to keep warm. Well done again to Oscar and Edwina who stuck with it.
And Dermot only moaned for about 50% of the spin which is less than usual for him!
Hopefully better weather next week!

quick question...If the Official club spin is cancelled and a few of us decide to head out ...are we covered by our club/TI insurance?

Hi Viv

Once you have a Triathlon Ireland racing licence, you're covered for both club training and training on your own. This page should help to explain it - www.triathlonireland.com/Resources/Insurance/
