Now Storm Dennis is giving us something to think about probably on Saturday…whats app will have news in advance…so keep an eye groups as we currently look we will have yellow warnings with high winds forecast on both days…

The club committee met this week and decided on a protocol to be followed in cases where a spin may be cancelled due to weather or other dangers.

In future;

We will endeavour to make a decision from the start location, on the day, unless there is a weather warning issued by MET Eireann, which would indicate dangerous conditions for cycling.
