Easy spin and pint

Safe to say everyone enjoyed this weeks easy spin.

There were a few worried faces when the ride started on Killynure but it all worked out well in the end.

Even Desi let his hair down (pun intended), enjoying a pint at the "4 Winds" while catching the last rays of the setting Sun and listening to the soothing beeping of Garmin watches going into powersave mode.

BBQ update

The BBQ and bike orienteering will be given a miss this year.

Instead, on the 25th June, be ready to leave the Carryduff layby at the usual time of 18:45. The plan will be a recovery ride (so make sure you do a hard session on Monday) for about an hour. After we will go for a beer, perhaps at the White Horse in Saintfield.

Temple 2 LAP (4th June 2013)

Two notices before the results.

1) Next week we are joining the QUB brick session

Start time: 18:30
Location: Heron Road, off Airport Road West
Map link
Session time: typically 60-90mins
Bring your running shoes.
There should be a group cycling down, leaving Queens PEC at 18:15.
Flat quiet roads and no stop watches!

2) The BBQ evening (Tues 25th June)

There will be an email sent today about the BBQ. Please RSVP as soon as possible.
The BBQ will only run this year if people commit to going upfront. It takes to much effort to come up with a bike orienteering course and put on a BBQ for only a small group. If there is not enough interest we will just go out for an easy roll that evening and have a beer after.

TT Training 2019

2019 Rules

You must have a TI licence (a training licence is sufficient), be a member of a triathlon club and have working front AND rear lights on your bike. Cycling helmets are also mandatory. For events marked (ATH) - this means it is an athletes TT, meaning that no TT equipment should be used, such as TT bikes, TT bars, aero helmets etc. You can of course turn up with TT equipment, however, you should be prepared for general teasing and mickey taking as the penalty for doing so!

As we are riding on public roads, the rules of the roads apply. The committee have notified the PSNI of our plans for the season; being seen and riding safely are of paramount importance - these events are very enjoyable and will improve your time trialling, but we should all stay safe when participating in them and we all have a responsibility to ensure that this happens.



27 - Titanic (Head to head final)

3 - Drumbo Hill Climb
