Last weekend proved to be the busiest of the season so far for the club, with C4SC cyclists out in force in big numbers. It all started on Saturday with cyclists taking part in the Pat Nolan School for the Deaf cycle and the Pakie Ryan Memorial cycle. Both cycles had huge numbers out from C4SC supporting great causes as always.

On Sunday the team headed to Lehinch for the Atlantic Challenge over 80km. We had another great turnout on what was a glorious day on the coast of Clare. The team also met the legend Stephen Roche. The route was very well marshalled and it was a superbly run event with all proceeds raised going to support the visually impaired and blind people of Co. Clare.

Our race team made the trip to Carlow for the Des Hanlon Memorial. Eddie O’Connell was once again in the mix placing in the top 15. Our best wishes go to team member Paul O’Connell who was in a great position for a placing but was involved in a crash close to the finish. We wish Paul a speedy recovery.

Our Sunday spin from the Delta last week covered 100km, once again a great turnout and great effort by all.

This Sunday 1st April the team meet at the Delta Dome at 8.45am for roll out at 9am sharp. Routes for this Sunday will be published on the website on Thursday. We also have members taking part in the Dolmen tour in Ennis, Co Clare along with our race team making the trip to Fermoy.
