13 cyclists left Thurles at 9, onto HolyCross, Cashel, NewInn, Golden, back to Cashel and old Dublin Rd to Thurles. We were joined by two more cyclists in Cashel and thy stayed with us until Horse and Jockey. Cycle covered 80 K approx with some lads getting extra miles in by cycling to and home from Thurles. Cycle averaged 25 kph and the plan is to keep this avg for the next 6/8 weeks. This is a great chance for any new comers to make a start into cycling with the club. Nobody will be left behind and the shelter of the group makes it very achievable to stay at the back for the day.
