Club member Micheal O’Driscoll recently successfully completed Iron Man Lanzorote in a blistering time. Micheal’s performance really brought home what hard work can achieve. It has reinvigorated club members who are training for various events throughout the summer. A big shout out to Dermot Brosnan also who put in a very strong performance in the Coachford Classic.
Wednesday evening spins are continuing at 7.00pm from Watergrasshill Villagge, all welcome. The Saturday spin was cancelled this weekend due to heavy rainfall and standing water on some roads. 
A group of 12 took o the roads on Sunday morning for a 60km spin which took in Mildleton and Carrigtwohill.
