Hi Shane,

You picked a good week for a come back its a grand flat route.... to answer your question the 10.00am spin will probably have about 2 or 3 groups, depending on numbers. JD's will be c25kmph, my group will be 27kmph and John O'Connors about 29kmph. While the 9.00am groups pace would be dictated by who turns up on the day but it would be faster then JD's group.

I hope this helps.

Colm.

Some of you might have seen an email notification about Saturday spins and staying together as a group. And after last night's BBQs as I was thinking, everyone thought it was about me! Which it wasn't and it's why the post was taken down, very swiftly but unfortunately you can't recall email notifications. And I'm in IT.. I tried!!!

Every week on my spins I have been so well looked after. Dan dragging my very tired legs home yesterday, Tony got me down that mad scary hill from roundwood, John D must have scaled the Sally Gap 3 times coming back for me.. Admittedly John D does need the hill practice so I reckoned I was doing him a favour. :cheer:

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, so many people have helped. Giving buckets of advice and improving my descending. A big shout out to Paul Evans for that one. I'm actually getting pretty good at descending. Can't believe I ever liked climbing. That is awful!!! Lesson learned there B)

Anyways I have gotten loads of advice and help. I'm sorry to hear anyone has had any problems but if they hang out with me at the back of group 2 I usually have roped someone in to help me. I clearly look very desperate or I'm lovely company. Im sticking with the latter!

See you at all the next spin, group 2 you aren't getting rid of me yet :cheer:
