Everyone - just a short reminder to ensure your club memberships and Cycling Ireland / IVCA memberships are up to date.
There may be some confusion on our club dues & insurance both of which are payable annually. They cover members from the start of january to the end of december, and should be paid at the beginning of each calendar year. Any late payment covers you retrospectively to the prior January and until the year's end, not for 12 months from payment.
Equally, it is up to each rider to ensure membership with the relevant organisation CI or IVCA. This is very important for insurance purposes.
Dear All, Myself and Donal were discussing, yesterday, the importance of stretching after your cycle or any sport for that matter. With this in mind we thought some members might like a guide on how to stretch correctly. Click on the link below for step by step instructions along with images. It gives a 6 minute and a 12 minute routine. Stretching keeps your muscles flexible and conditioned especially after a pounding spin so make sure to save some time for it. http://www.ab-solutely-fit.com/best-stretching-routines.html Remember, stretching should not be painful so enjoy.
