Saturday 26th

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
There have been a number of falls at the kerb just outside the entrance to Chester Beatty's Car Park. Mostly at the end of the spin, when people have switched off and are thinking about coffee! Can i remind EVERYONE to be extra diligent when turning into the carpark. Either dismount and walk over the kerb, or if you are cycling over the kerb, do so at right angles, so the front wheel doesn't slide from underneath you. There are also dips in the kerb just before Chesters, this is a safer area to enter the car park.

So how did u get on today?

Group 4 - tough day chasing Scotty too hotty on his new steed, some great climbs and as always the suffering of the Burkes sprint!

We did the decent thing in waiting for Darragh to fix his puncture, only for him and his wingman Barry to jump us at the coffee shop!

Well done to Dee Hough, doing it for the girls with fast group!

Hello Jamie, All
Won't make the cycle tommorrow ... I would have to miss an easy week!
I'm sure group 3 will manage without me.
