Laurent Fignon RIP

Laurent Fignon was laid to rest in Paris toady.
He said in the first page of his book:

"Cycling is a living, breathing art. Those cyclists who forget that are halfway to becoming sloths. Isn't it better to gamble on victory than to secure a comfortable defeat?"

We were so lucky to have watched such a talent and fighting spirit on the bike! Rest in Peace

Starting this Tuesday - Women's only Spin class

In order to fill the gap left by the great racing in both women's leagues and to continue improving the level of fitness we have a Women's Only Spin Class every Tuesday up to the Rás na mBan. That's 10 weeks in total, split into two blocks of 5 weeks each. These are specific classes which include all aspects of race fitness, and as they are indoors everyone can go at their own level without any fear of getting dropped.

We'll also provide free tea and coffee in keeping with the tradition of the league.

Booking is essential, either call me on: 087-2441210 or 01-4097711 OR click on "Prices and Services" and then "Booking and Payment" on the main web site

Endurance Training Centre

.....A long pause after my last post, as each week I held off in the hope I'd have a big announcement any day.

Well after a lot of setbacks and difficulty finding the right premises, I found a great one. But yet more delays means I still can't say for sure when we'll be opening up. Supposed to be receiving the lease this week, so if they keep their word, I should have good news by the weekend.

Fingers crossed as it's been very frustrating watching the winter indoor training season slip by and being unable to put on classes for everyone.

But these things happen in business, the set backs are just challenges that keep things from getting boring.

I think the top of the hill's in sight now, so I'm out of the saddle and going for it....
