Club Spins – Dublin

We now have club spins taking place on both Saturdays and Sundays.

The Saturday spins leave from the Yellow House in Rathfarnham at 8:30. These are intended to be relatively short, hilly rides, starting around the 60km mark and building up as the season progresses. Contact Eoghan Barry for more details.

The Sunday rides leave from St. Margarets (behind the airport) at 8:30. The pace will be easier and the terrain flatter than the Saturday rides, but the distances will be longer, currently around the 90-100km mark, and there will usually be a cafe stop. Contact Paul Newman for more details.

Which one should you do? Both of them, of course.

Muffin Mosey

Mosey on down to the Grove Bar (aka Devereux’s), Kilpedder, Co. Wicklow on New Year’s Eve for a leisurely social spin organised by Paul O’Donoghue.

The ride will start at 10am and is expected to take between three to four hours, depending on the weather and how the group is feeling.  It’ll be followed up with a coffee and muffin at Paul’s house.

All are welcome but please email Paul to let him know you’re coming so he can gauge numbers.

Subscribe to the Calendar

The bould Aidan Creaner had the smart notion of putting the calendar up as a public calendar on Google Calendar so that people could subscribe to it.  So I spent a merry hour or so doing just that.  However, it would appear that Google in their infinite wisdom have taken away the option to search for public calendars which will make it a little difficult, I would have thought, for people to find it.

If you use iCal or anything else that works on .ics format, the address to subscribe to the feed is:

In Google calendar, click the triangle right of “Other Calendars” in the sidebar, click “Add by URL” and paste the address in.

In iCal, go Calendar > Subscribe, and paste the address in the box.
