After torrential rains on Saturday’s leisure spin, this morning was a much more pleasant trip for the gang of 25 who met at Woodies and headed off for a cuppa in Kilkishen via Windy Gap. The early winners up the hill ascent taking a quick break while waiting for the rest of the group to catch their breath and find their legs again. Many thanks to the Mace in Kilkishen for quick service of the caffeine after the gang descended on them for a well earned coffee stop. The group split into two after the coffee stop with group 1 continuing straight back to Sixmilebridge and home after a 55km route. Group 2 took a hard right and continued to Latoon, Shannon and home via the Ennis Road at a mighty galloping pace with 2b following up and bringing up the rear on the 80k spin. Well done everyone and welcome to those who joined us for the first time today. More fun (and maybe a few hills) next week.
