Thank you so much Dave & team for a great spin and encouragement all the way despite the chilly weather..Also for your extreme patience with me when I found my accumulated tempo dropping off as I attempted to climb those hills!!!!..Learning so much so delighted to have the opportunity to cycle with you. Highly recommend this group to anyone considering making the move.
Thank you, Edwina

Weather: Saturday will be a bright, fresh day with sunny spells and showers. The showers will be heaviest and most frequent in Atlantic coastal counties and over Ulster, with some hail and with an ongoing risk of thunder. But many eastern and southern areas will be dry. Top temperatures 6 to 9 C., in a moderate southwest breeze.

Enjoy it out there!
Owen

Hi All
Group 5 stats today:
Nice route over shay Elliot, up Shelton and back N11
86k
850m of climbing
7 in group
27.5kph

Diminishing numbers this week! Looking at the huge number of experienced cyclists in the car park every Saturday morning it's hard to believe we have not had more people step up and ride with group 5 at least once to try it out.

We are moving into February so it's time to up the intensity a bit and move out of the comfort zone. So come on, surely there are a few of you out there secretly wanting to step up and give it a go!?!?

Well done today to Oscar who joined us and only struggled a bit on the run home from Arklow. He's doing well and will hopefully stick with it.

Till next week.......
