Leisure Group News

Following last night’s meeting, the club have decided to formalise the structure of the leisure and intermediate groups, and to appoint road captains for each group.
The road captains will lead and direct their respective spins. Members must at all times:

  • Obey directions from road captains (whilst cycling within the rules of the road)
  • Respect all other group riders
  • Ride within the limits of the group (as dictated by the road captains)
  • Enjoy yourselves 🙂

The committee would like to thank the following riders for agreeing to become road captains.
Leisure Group: Jackie Crinion and Dave Turner
Intermediate Group: Conor McCabe and Eric McGovern
Road captains for the race group will continue to be Colin O’Connor and Andrew Watters
