The Days are growing shorter so we are now moving back to our autumn schedule of Sunday spins. We welcome boys and girls from 8 to 16years to join us, so if you can think of anyone who has expressed an interest in getting out on their bikes let them know about this. They are also welcome to contact me by email or phone, Geoff Robinson (Robinson@bim.ie, 087 905 7953).
We run road and mountainbike spins at our meet locations (except where noted).
We are making some changes this year and are organising 2 unique spins.
On Saturday the 22nd of October we plan to head down to Bike Park Ireland in Tipperary. (http://www.bikeparkireland.ie/) It’s a purpose built MTB trail centre. This place is fully equipped with hire bikes (if you don’t have an MTB) and uplifts to the trails so tired legs won’t stop us maximising the day. Much like a ski centre they have a range of runs suitable for everyone from 8 years and up. We will stay overnight nearby and head to Portumna forest on the Sunday. There are several trails of different lengths and there isn’t too much climbing involved so this will once again be suitable for all. If you’re interested in being part of this please let me know and we can start planning! (Please contact Geoff Robinson Robinson@bim.ie, 087 905 7953).
We are also planning a small Epic spin on one Sunday, preliminarily the 20th November. We will need your help for this as we plan to do a linear trip. We will start in one location and finish in another. We will accommodate all our riders on this spin by having different ‘join points’ along the route. We will all finish at the same time and place for collection. More information on this later
