Summer Only

Tuesday: Women Only Spin. Leaving from Felda at 6.45pm. We would like to encourage as many women as possible to come out for a spin as long as the light allows. Spins will get naturally longer as the summer progresses. There will be a mix of experience and ability so different sub groups will be formed.  This is a great way to meet up with other female cyclists. Please check out Cuchulainn Women FB for updates of weekly spins.

Tuesdays & Thursdays: Knight Riders' Midweek Spins:  Leaving from Felda at 6.15pm sharp. Contact xxxx yyyyyy 087 7599999. Leave work behind for a few hours (depending on light), get out and enjoy the sun and great company.  This is a leisurely group- not for aspiring boy racers! Runs from April to Sept only. All spins will be posted in advance on Cuchulainn Leisure Group Facebook page.

 

Winter spins are about 2 – 3 hours with a coffee stop. Summer spins are about 3- 4 hours with a short stop.

Speed is about 20- 25km (chatting pace). We make sure everyone gets home ok. If you fall behind we will wait for you, or if you breakdown or puncture- we stop and help. The spins are meant to be enjoyed. Please have 2 spare tubes, levers, a pump and a small tool kit. A helmet must be worn on all spins.

Looking for ward to another rewarding year.

Philip.
