I put together a few minutes from last Saturday’s cycle to give an inside view to anybody not used to group cycling. The main idea is to keep the groups small (so we often split 3 groups of 8-10 cyclists), so everyone gets their turn at the front.
All comments welcome, but do be kind, it’s my first video!!!

As part of a review of our Winter Training Schedule, we are starting an Intermediate level Sunday cycle session from this Sunday 16th October for men and women. Distances will start at 80km and should suit those who want a second cycle session at the weekend, or find the 60km saturday spin too slow but not quite at the pace of the fast Saturday group. Terrain will vary from week to week but we are starting this week with a flat Kilcock route http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/4765347
Meet at Rathfarnham club house at 9.30 am.
Make sure you bring enough food and drink for the 80km as well as spare tube, helmet and a roadworthy road bike!

Three weeks to go before the 2011 Runways Duathlon Series starts.
May the 4th will be our 33rd Duathlon in the Park, so we hope you’ll be back for the largest duathlon series in the UK & Ireland.
Free training on the Duathlon course
We’re running a free training evening on the Duathlon Course, which is geared towards beginners, but we’ll have a few past winners to help those looking to shave seconds off their times. Sign up for free here. Do spread the word to any friends who might be interested.
Looking for a bit more Adventure?
Why not try the HellFire Duathlon Series? After last years first HellFire Duathlon, we’ve expanded to a three race series to take in the other two woods on the cycle loop; Massy’s and Cruagh. The runs get progressively tougher as the series progress, but the challenging bike loop is constant. The runs start with a trail run in Cruagh Woods in May, The Massy’s run in June has a bit more bite, while the run over the HellFire summit in July is a full scale mountain run.
