...and here we go yet again for another year of cycling.
2017 was a good year for the club. We gained some great new members and there weren't too many days when at least one Dromore CC top wasn't seen out on the local roads. We had group runs happening basically every day of the week between April and October and our Facebook page had images from further afield as some of our members took on the tarmac and hills in Majorca, France, mainland Spain, Tenerife and Thailand. Here's hoping that 2018 is as successful.
It is now time to renew your club membership - even if you're not cycling. It won't be long until the Members Facebook group for 2017 will close and a new one for 2018 will be opened and only those who have paid will be invited to join the new group. It is also worth checking your Cycling Ireland membership as many expired on 31st December. Remeber, we cannot alllow anyone to cycle in our groups unless they are fully insured.
Training is already under way for those who wish to race this year and those who are tackling the early larger sportives. At the moment, as ever, our runs are determined by the weather and if mother nature allows us out to play. If you are interested in getting a few miles, it is bast you keep an eye on our Members Facebook page. We still try to go on a Monday night, Wednesday night, Saturday morning and Sunday morning and the Facebook page is regularly updated with information.
Our committee will be meeting on 16th January so if you have anything you want discussed at committee level, please make sure you advise one of the committee members or send an email to the club before 15th. We will soon be posting our list of sportives for March and April - these will be posted on our website and Social media.
Till next time - happy miles.
