Looking forward to another big group on Sunday. Weather is getting milder so no bike skating this week. The main route is one that we have used before with a bit of a twist at the end. Route is out to Halfway then on to the back road through Crossbarry on to Bandon. Then out the Dunmanway Road for a few kms then turning left towards the main Clonakilty Bandon Road. Instead of heading to Inishannon on the main road, take a back(hilly) road and come into Inishannon at the bridge. Option of stopping in Bandon for coffee or continuing to the Amber Service Station at Bishopstown, route here: For the the beginners, the leaders are John O’Shaughnessy and Joanne Hegarty, the route starts out the same way but only goes as far as Brinny then cuts across directly to Inishannon and can be seen here: The usual meeting time of 9:00am at City Hall, if you are a beginner try to get there a little early to give us a chance to organise. Will probably use the same format as Anthony advised last week with the strong pack starting out 5min behind the main group. Again for beginners, bring spare tubes, tyre levers, and a pump. Also we have had a few of the beginners bonking after 25km or so (It’s not as naughty as it sounds) so bring some kind of energy source, banana, cereal bar, a gel whatever will give a bit of a boost.
