Hi all,
The season is well and truly upon us and numbers and leaders have been a bit down lately.
Aidan's coached sessions have ended ... we hope you have all benefited from the structure.
I'm planning on just posting 2 routes for the next few weeks - Group 1 (new to Tri) and Group 2/3/4 (who have all been doing the same routes lately)
Also remember that we should be trying to hit some average speed targets
Group 1 - 22kph
Group 2 - 24/25 kph
Group 3/4 - 26+kph

For the group 5ers and those who want to go flat and long it's probably boring Gorey and back.

Group 1 (New to Tri) Paul Wade 10am 43k
Ashford - right before travellers - kiloughter - rathnew - Glenealy - deputy's pass - right up Kilmacurra - left to Barndarrig -
Lil Doyles - N11 - beehive - top of Marlton - rathnew - ashford

Group 2/3 'The return of the Gap' 10am (John Darcy) 70K
Ashford - miltown lane - Rathdrum - 'around the outside' - through village - Laragh - Glenmacnas waterfall-
SALLY GAP - turn right for Roundwood - knockatemple - killeskey - Ashford.

Group 4 'The return of the Gap' 9am (Gaby/Martina) 70K
Ashford - miltown lane - Rathdrum - 'around the outside' - through village - Laragh - Glenmacnas waterfall-
SALLY GAP - turn right for Roundwood - knockatemple - killeskey - Ashford.

Weather: Mist and fog soon clearing, to give a dry, sunny start to the day. The sunshine will become more hazy in nature by lunchtime, as cloud increases and rain and drizzle will affect Atlantic coastal counties, later in the afternoon and the evening. Top temperatures 16 to 19 C., best in eastern areas.

Remember up the Gap conditions can change very suddenly - was up there this morning and the drizzle was mighty - bring a rain/wind jacket, and sunscreen.

Enjoy,
Owen
