    A fabulous days cycling along two Canals, with a very friendly bunch of cyclists.

    Hey Peter,

    sorry you missed this very enjoyable spin because of a flat. I had a repair kit and pump with me. We'll have to figure out a way to ensure that a regular freewheeler like you does not miss a cycle in future.

    Kind regards
    Val.

    Hi all, I'm on the waiting list,, I think I'm first up. So hopefully there will be a cancellation. It will be my 1st cycle with this group so I'm looking forward to it :)

    August 13, 2013

  • Val

    Hi Folks, I answered some questions recently on site but I messed up because they seemed to have disappeared!!! (1) Yes, Freewheelers are welcome join at Confey but it's our switching point for the Grand Canal so you'll miss the first part.

    (2) The limit on spaces is a safety and enjoyment issue. As I see how the group develops I may increase the limit on cycles organised by me, but I think about 20 seems right.

    (3) Total focus is about fun cycles in good company, distance, speed, types of bicycles are not important.

    If I haven't answered some of your questions please put them up again as I check the site every few evenings.

    Kind regards
    Val.

      17 people were down for the cycle in the park yesterday only 9 turned up.

      August 12, 2013

    • Val

      "no shows" or people who cancel at the last minute have the least priority for spaces on cycles organised by me.

  • Lalla B.

    Hi ..sorry silly question ...do you think that I will be able to rent a bike at the entrance of Phoenix Park ?

    August 11, 2013

    • Dee

      Yes you can .there is a bike rental company there. Just maybe bring your own helmet

      August 11, 2013

    • Val

      Hi Lalla, could I suggest you check the opening times on a Sunday morning for the Hire shop as we are LEAVING at 10am and if they open at 10am it won't work.

      August 12, 2013

  • Caitriona O.

    Can I meet at confey as well. There is a water amenities club on the canal bank we could meet at

  • Dee

    val. How many k is the cycle. Which bike is more suited to the paths ta Dee

    August 8, 2013

    • Val

      Hi Dee, I have planned two routes both with short breaks, so dependant on the experience level of the gang on the day I pick one. It's an easy 3hr. spin but I'd suggest wide threaded tyres as there is a mixture of surfaces.

      1 · August 9, 2013

    • Dee

      Are you passing by confey station .i can meet you there as im about ten minute cycle from there
