Flirting with Carrauntuoohil

Posted: June 2, 2015 · By: Dave Elton · Comments: 0

A back road adventure. For the club I'm riding with, The Chain Gang CC, it's exciting times for almost half the members. In just a couple of weeks, sunny climbs and alpine mountains await, as they head to France to conquer those gruelling Tour de France show case peaks. For the rest of the club it's a case of battling through this "cold, wet and windy" snap and enjoying things as best we can. [...]

#fitforfeb 4th and final week

Becoming part of a routine! Were as week 1 had an element of excitement at starting something new and fresh, the middle weeks had me down with a cold and at times finding the whole thing hard and laborious.

30 Days and 30 Cycles: Day 21

Day 21 and this evening was a supposed relaxed spin with the club. Setting out with the best of intentions to take it easy does not guarantee that it will remain so. From a gentle start some of us got impatient and headed off for some lively cycling. Ended up with a nice 31 miles this evening. Left Tralee and headed off towards Farranfore and Castleisland and back to Tralee. Tomorrow will be an easy day before the Ring of Kerry on [...]
