Friday, Saturday (Beginners Course #2) and Sunday
Loads happening this weekend – hill-running, beginner’s biking, intermediate biking and awesome/savage biking!
Friday – Myself and Cait are gonna continue our preparations for Annacurragh by hitting the hills for some mountain running. Meet at 7pm at the entrance to Ticknock Carpark. Everyone is welcome.
Saturday – Beginners Course #2
With a great turnout of 22 riders, many of them taking their first steps into the world of mountainbiking, we are pleased to announce details of this week’s adventure….
The MAD MTB Beginners Course continues this on Saturday, August 11th. We’ll meet up in the Kindlestown car park at 10am (directions below). Sean will show you how to repair a puncture before starting – something which everyone will eventually need to know how to do. Depending on the numbers who turn up we’ll divide into smaller groups and have an easy ride around Kindlestown for about two hours.
Helmets are compulsory on these rides (Ask Fidelma why!!!) – no exceptions under any circumstances. Check here for a list of what else to bring.If you’re under 16 you must have a parent/guardian sign this form and bring it along on the day. There is no cost for attending these rides but anyone continuing to ride with MAD afterwards must join the club (€20, +€35 Cycling Ireland membership).
Most people will need to drive to this venue so lifts will probably be required by some – use the website or mailing list to organise this amongst yourselves.

Sunday – There will be two Sunday spins this week – one easy and one hard. Both of the spins are meeting at Taylor’s Threerock Pub at 10am.
1)RachelC will be taking the easier spin to Cloon and back via the Wicklow Way. If you are interested then e-mail her at “rachelcinnsealach AT googlemail DOT com” or call/text on 087 2561906. Rachel would be grateful if one or two of the more experienced members could lend a hand.
2)The harder spin will be heading further afield after some fun on Madjestic and the other trails in Ticknock. Hopefully we’ll get as far as Djouce after Ticknock. Contact me on 0879335403 or poloholemint AT gmail DOT com for more details.
